FOREWORD 

IT iill began on the banks of the Meuse Ri\-er. Xo sooner had a eolonel of 
French infantry ajiproached one of our junior otticers on .\ovemlx-r 12th, 
saying, "Tell your commanding officer that he can pull his regiment out 
any time he wants to," than a couple of the Old Timers found themselves of the 
opinion that an account should be written of our experiences. As a result, 
about the first of January, Colonel Sheldon decreed that one officer, to be 
designated as Historian, should not be compelled to spend all his time driving 
imaginary machine gun nests out of the wooded hills bordering upon Chau- 
mont. 

The work of writing A History of the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantr>' 
thus commenced, gaining headway by almost imperceptible degrees, for the 
Historian was rendered practically hors dc combat by the consciousness of his 
small degree of new-found, unprecedented freedom, incapable of sane, con- 
secutive effort. Nevertheless, three photographic teams were sent back over 
all the fighting ground, obtaining almost a thousand pictures from which two 
hundred have been selected for publication, and many men of the Regiment 
were persuaded to write of their adventures. Be it said that some made 
startling disclosures to which propriety and practice deny the light of print. 
Much of it is, howe\er, in the oft-times inelegant but graphic language of the 
American Doughboy, rough of speech but ever kind of heart and keen. If 
one or another company is quoted too frequently in the story it is simply because 
that scribe, squatting upon the floor of his billet, bending low in the flickering 
candle-light over a piece of Y. M. C. A. paper and a stubby pencil, succeeded 
better than his fellows in expressing the American soldier as he is. His ob- 
servations and experiences are but typical of all the others. The thought 
arises at this point that too much space may have been devoted to the rifle- 
men — that not enough has been said of the services of su])ply, of the runners, 
of the signal men and linemen, braving unspeakable dangers to perfect and 
maintain the "nerves" of the Regiment. Of the Auxilian,' — we cannot say 
enough. 

It was early a question, in the minds of those displa_\-ing the greatest 
determination that there be a ])ermanent regimental record, whether this 
book should be so prepared as only to thrill posterity with a recital of glorious 
deeds, or so constructed as to reveal the man in the ranks as he really is. 
Should it be an idealistic or realistic representation? Should it assume the 
guise of a glorified Operations Report, setting everything down in painstaking 
chronological order? Should it be a series of Comj)any Histories, or Battalion 
Histories or one big Regimental Story? 

A story it is, rather than a history. We do not go "o\er the top" in 
everv' chapter, waving the P'lag and shouting, "Forward!" as the posters de- 
pict. We spend a lot of time growling and grumbling with the other boys; 
we trv to show the mud on his shoes, the humor that ne\er deserted him even

in the very blackest moments; we picture him with a suggestion of budding 
horns, instead of Cupid-wings — and have a lot of fun living over again with 
him the crowded hours of the last two years. 

When Captain Kenderdine was asked to prepare a roster of officers, past 
and present, he obligingly said, "Sure," expecting to be detained half an hour. 
Four weeks later he came up for air. You can therefore guess, without much 
difficulty, how stupendous was the task of Sergeant James J. Wliite who 
assembled the roster of enlisted personnel, with statistics pertaining to seven 
thousand men ! To Captain Garner goes the credit for the preparation of the 
maps, and to Captain Crosby — well, the book would not have been a true 
account of the Three Hundred and Fifth without his cover and his inimitable 
sketches. 

Of sage conclusion as to war, prohibition, Prussianism and politics 
there is none. Only this : that had there been such a thing as universal service, 
we might have got over sooner and back earUer. Some of our other ideas 
have changed a whole lot. No longer shall we sob if the bed seems short. 
No longer shall we scoff at eating warmed-overs. After twelve months of 
canned corned beef and hardtack the old hash will seem like a political banquet. 
When we think of chlorinated water, cold cofi'ee will be as welcome to us as 
cream to a cat. In short, we think that members of the Three Hundred and 
Fifth will be a whole lot easier to li\e with, and that America is the on\y real 
place in which really to live.

CHAPTER I 

AT CAMP UPTON 

FORTY years hence, when little John clambers upon your knee with a 
" Grandpa, tell me a soldier story," you will not have to disappoint the 
child. If your memory has not survived the strain, if you still suffer 
from shell shock, you can at least look in the book for inspiration. The 
Regimental Story will remind you of all the stories it fails to record. On the 
other hand, if your imagination is too fruitful, it will serve as a check upon the 
irresistible tendency to tell a whopper. By all means, keep the child quiet; 
his mother will thank you; but at the same time fill him with a wholesome 
respect for the glory of American Arms, and of the Three Hundred and Fifth. 
Yet be careful! Get these few essential facts straight, or the boy will come 
back at you with embarrassing questions as soon as he is old enough to read 
the book for himself. 

However, the main purpose of this story is to record the fun and the 
facts as we found them. To be sure, we often had to manufacture the fun; 
though really, a laugh could be found in almost any situation, however tense, 
however hopeless and disagreeable. \'ou laughed your way through stump 
pulling, kitchen police, through the endless drilling; through the submarine 
zone, through marmalade and tea; through shell fire on the Vesle, through 
machine-gun fire in the Argonne; through the five months following the armis- 
tice — the hardest battle of the war. Your persistent good humor went a long 
way toward beating the Hun. 

Come back to Upton with us then; come over to France. Get into the 
old ramshackle billets again where you argued for standing room with the 
cows and chickens. Step down into the trenches once more; roll around in 
the muddy old funk holes. Get real muddy! Sleep on the floor of a cold 
hommes et chevaux parlor car. Sample the cold corned willie. See if the 
canned goldfish is any less delicious than it ustd to be. Grcwl and grumble 
as you used to and then — laugh, as you used to. 

Begin your story by telling how you and a host of other civilians, in the 
summer of 1917, knowing nothing of military life and caring less, were called 
upon by the United States to show the world, Germany in particular, that 
there are certain outrages we cannot stand for; how your local board instructed 
you to report on such-and-such a day, how the bands and the banners and the 
tears convinced you that the trenches were only a week or two away at most ; 
how you landed at Camp Upton near Yaphank, Long Island, and felt your 
heart sink. On that memorable day, you probably experienced no patriotic 
thrill. You and your trainload of comrades, mostly in old clothes, with little 
handbags or bundles containing the things your mother thought necessary to 
military life, a mob of boys of all the nationalities and creeds that go to make 
up the cosmopolitan city of New York; who couldn't keep step, of course; 



12 A HISTORY OF THE 305 th IXFAXTRY 

who could scarcely align themselves in a "column of two's" — you couldn't 
have licked Germany on that afternoon ! Officers and men who that day saw 
you struggle toward the barracks often recalled the picture, ten months later, 
when they saw you filing silently through the communicating trenches in the 
pitchv darkness, single file, five paces apart, ever)' man keeping contact, tried, 
reliable, dependable. What a change — eh? 

"It was a Wednesday afternoon, at three P. M.," writes a scribe from 
F Company, "and raining like mad when our train pulled into a place called 
Camp Upton. They had a band of music at the station playing the Star 
Spangled Banner, to get us to feel like fighting. It did — the way they played 
it. A few roughnecks from the regulars received us. The Sergeant gave a 
command: 'Column of two's. Forward, ]\I.\RCHI' But we bums stood like 
a bunch of dopes, for we didn't know what a column of two's meant. All the 
way to the barracks, the one-month veterans were saying: 'Wait till you get 
the needle.'" 

Irvin Cobb, in the Saturday Evening Post, said: "I saw them when they 
first landed at Camp Upton, furtive, frightened, slow-footed, slack-shouldered, 
underfed, apprehensive — a huddle of unhappy aliens, speaking in alien tongues, 
and knowing little of the cause for which they must fight, 
*' ^ and possibly caring less. I saw them again three months 
later, when the snow of the dreadful winter of 1917-1918 
was piling high about their wooden barracks down there on 
wind-swept Long Island. The stoop was beginning to come 
out of their spines, the shamble out of their gait. They had 
learned to hold their heads up; had learned to look every 
man in the eye and tell him to go elsewhere, with a capital 
H. They knew now that discipline was not punishment, 
and that the salute was not a mark of servility, but an 
evidence of mutual self-respect between officer and man. 
They wore their uniforms with pride. The flag meant some- 
rhing to them and the war meant something to them. Three 
short, hard months of training had transformed them from 
a rabble into soldier stuff; from a street mob into the makings of an army; 
from strangers into Americans. After nine months I have seen them once 
more in France. For swagger, for snap, for smartness in the drill, for cockiness 
in the billet, for good-humor on the march, and for dash and spunk and deviltry 
in the fighting into which just lately they have been sent, our Arni\- can show 
no better and no more gallant warriors than the lads who mainly make up the 
rank and file of this particular division." 

The Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry was a part of that 77th Division. 
Just when was the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry born? Some will 
say that the regiment began when the 77th Division was drawn up on paper 
and the words "Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry" written down for the 
first time. Others will maintain that it began with a handful of reserve 
officers, fresh from the First Plattsburg Training Camp, who boarded the 




AT CAMP UPTON 



train for Yaphank on August 29, 1917, who groped their way among a myriad 
of sweating workmen, teams, wagons, motor trucks, jitneys, lumber piles, 
stables, shanties; over fresh broken roads, felled trees, stumps, brush and 
sticky mud; who somehow found a hill upon which sat an unpaintcd shack 
and some vague personage who directed them to Barrack J, No. 21; who 
bought iron cots from colored workmen not unwilling to pick up an illegitimate 
penny on the side; who shivered for want of blankets and baggage, washed 
at the community spigot, got a dose of lead poisoning and swore off on water 
for many weeks; who presently found their names dangling from a sort of 
family tree with Colonel William R. Smedberg's name away up at the top, 
followed by Lieut. -Colonel James C. (Jim Crow) Rhea's; a little further down, 
the majors of the First, Second and Third Battalions, respectively — Walter 
W. Metcalf, Charles W. Dall, Harold C. Woodward; and spreading below 
them on the lower branches, each little cluster of company officers. While 
much of the success of the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry can be attributed 
to the Regular Army "idea," and to the high-minded principles and ability 
of Colonel Smedberg (a situation which found a parallel in manv another regi- 
ment of the National Army), a good deal of credit can be given, with ail 
fairness, to the Reserve Officers, business men, college men, volunteers — all 
interested, all enthusiastic. "When I gave an order," said Colonel Smedberg, 
"I knew that it would be well carried out." 

One morning they were roused as usual by the distant barrage of count- 
less hammers pounding away across the horizon, to find that the Rookies 
were due. Seemingly out of nothing, a city of barracks like a boom town in 
the mining regions had arisen down in the "R" .section to receive them, and 
thither journeyed each little family of company officers. What a scramble 
ensued for cots and bed-sacks and straw, for mess 
kits and blankets and civilian cooks, for stoves, fuel, 
ice-boxes and rations I 

And this is where most of you will doubtless say 
the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry had its be- 
ginning. 

"To half-finished barracks in a half-cleared 
forest, by the chances of the draft and the accidents 
of the Adjutant General's Department, there had 
come a handful of soldiers by j)rofession, some scores 
of men who for a few weeks had studied the military 
art, and nearly four thousand young citizens, ignorant 
of war, some eager, some reluctant, all unready for 
what they then considered hardship and restraint. 
Drill was to deal with their muscles; discipline, to bring incessant reminders 
of duty. They little knew how soon this great body would begin to have a 
militan.- semblance, aware of its ordered strength and conscious of a collec- 
tive purpose. Soon would both officers and men grow proud of themselves and 
of each other; the great traditions of soldiership would have laid hold of them."

What really laid hold of them without a moment's delay, was a Regular 
Army Sergeant who ordered them into the bath-house, QUICK. 

"Oh, but I've had a bath." 

"I don't care what you did last year; you're in the Army now." 

"But I took one this afternoon." 

"Hard luck; you've got to take another and be checked." 

Perhaps the water wasn't hot enough for those addicted to bathing; 
more than likely it was ice-cold. The artful dodgers were hauled out of bed 
by the strong arm squad for their first encounter with disciplinary action — 
whisk brooms and floor brushes vigorously applied by the First Sergeant's 
earlier and bitter victims. 

"When do we eat?" 

Almost the first words uttered by the new recruit. Expressive of the 
soldier's chief concern — his stomach. Heard later on the march, in battle, in 
billet; later still, the doughboy's victorious greeting to the armistice. Cer- 
tainly, the first words spoken at Camp Upton. He ate, and ate well, aston- 
ished to find so few beans, popularly rumored as the basis of army fare. To 
be sure, he was served "a thousand on a plate" very early in the game. 
However much he despised them then, he would later have given his overcoat 
for a single plate of those he earlier spurned. 

And having eaten, he stood around that first evening, by the large bon- 
fire kindled just outside the kitchen door, speculating as to his luck, his fate, 
telling his new-found comrades just what he thought of everything, particu- 
larly of his new officers. He had them sized up. He sang a bit. Heads 
bent close together as nasal agonies rent the night air. The bank clerk was 



AT CAMP U P T O N 



suddenly suqsrised to find his arm wrapped affectionately around the motor- 
man's shoulders. The street cleaner hooked up with the little pants-presser. 
Months later, they dug a funk hole together on the Aisne; and the street 
cleaner felt mighty sad when his buddy, the little pants-presser, "went west." 

"Lights outi Get to bed!" 

But not to sleep. Those wild Irishmen of F Company did not seem 
to care a bit if the occupant were still on the bed as it flew downstairs. Poor 
old Simon, already in a fair way to establish himself as the A Company 
barber, knew nothing of camouflage, failed utterly to detect in time the tricky 
genius of his new comrades, fell to the floor with a crash, all doubled up like 
a jack-knife in his folding cot, and reported to the orderly room that 
McGowan and his bunkies were a "geng uff loifers." Thus ended, as in a 
score of barracks, a perfect day. 

The same tough army sergeant who greeted you at the train, threw you 
into the bath and ordered you to bed, ordered you out. This was a bit too 
soon to curse the buglers. There weren't any. It was after hearing Reveille 
blown a countless number of times that you dreamed of the happy days to 
come, back in civil life, when, disgustingly wealthy, you could hire a bugler 
of your own, throw a brick at him, roll over and sleep as long as you dam 
pleased. You rose and made your own bed; a new experience, waving three 
blankets and a bed-sack into place. Thank Heaven, there were no sheets 
and pillows to battle with! 

Sour faces at breakfast. Then for a roll call, and off to the Infirmary 
for an examination. Here's where one might have seen at first, some great 
stalling. "I can't hear." "I can't see out of this left eye." "I've got 
flat feet." All the excuses in the world: but ahvavs the same answer, "You'll

do." Then for the needle. You have seen them keel over before it ever 
touched their arms. And some of them played faint. But the supposed terrible 
after-effects of the Typhoid Prophyla.xis always got you twenty-four hours 
ofif; so, 'twas almost worth it. And five needles worth made you a veteran. 

The qualification cards which showed a man's entire pedigree and which 
took so many hours to make out also revealed a surprising assortment of 
nationalities, whose names ran the gamut of the alphabet, backward and 
forward. It is said that a Heutenant, calling the roll of his company, hap- 
pened to sneeze. Four men answered: "Here!" Side by side, on the H 
Companv roster, perched a Parrot and a Peacock. Nearby, towering well 
above tlieir fellows, stood "Great" Scott and "So" Long. There was a 
Mason, a Brewer and a Singer; a Jewel and a Penny. One of the first cor- 
porals to be turned out was called Trainer. Bosch proved himself a good 
patriot despite his name. Fries made an excellent cook. But how appro- 
priate, that Piper should have become a bugler! 

Is there any company commander who didn't complain that all the qual- 
ification cards ever did for him was to betray the presence within his flock 
of a prize mechanic, chauffeur, plumber or typist? And wasn't it a fact that 
every man thought himself either skilled in the care and handling of horses, 
or a motor cyclist — having, no doubt, the vision of riding through the war as 
a messenger or a general's chauffeur? Only by the basest sort of deception 
could the captains, wQd-eyed from an excess of paper work, retain any sort 
of clerical assistance. No one but an officer can appreciate the trials and 
tribulations of those early days: the first morning reports, with Recruits 
entered in red, Assignments in black, the ration figures, plus and minus, always 
wrong, the ever-changing rosters, the receipts demanded and given for all 
the men and equipment passing back and forth from one unit to another. 

Well, the cards were a lovely color, and beautifully theoretical; and they 
did provide some amusement. Questioned as to his age, a man answered, 
"Twenty-seven." W^ien asked when he would be twenty-eight, he scratched 
his head, utterly baffled, and ventured: "Either May or December." A 
private was asked if, within his military experience, he had attended any 
schools. "Yes," he repUed, "the School of the Squad and the School of the 
Soldier." 

It was true that even before any of these pertinent facts concerning your 
history were known, you were told to spit out that gum, stood up in line, 
heels together, stomachs in, heads back — well, see paragraph 51 of the I. D. R. 
That's the way you couldn't stand, then. Thus began the elaborate and 
painful process of teaching the difference between the right foot and the left 
foot; between the muzzle and the butt of the rifle; between a general and a 
private. Now and then, the Two Silver Bars would crawl out from beneath 
a stack of papers, forms and records and emerge from the sanctity of the 
Orderly Room to see how the work was progressing. All this preliminary 
work was of course up to the heutenants, many of whom without doubt 
wondered, when they first called their little bunch of beginners to attention.

m 



whether or not the order would be jjrumptly obeyed. Thank Hea\en, it was. 

One must not forget, while trying to analyze the success of the National Army, 

that the men were ready, willing and ambitious to become good soldiers. 

C'lcneral Ale.xander, after assuming 

command of the 77th Division, 

learned to feel that his men would 

and could do anything expected of 

them. It was the willing spirit 

which carried them through. 

The riot which greeted the 

first week-end passes proved that 

a system was necessarj' — discipline 

all the way into New York; dis- 
cipline all the way back. Passes 

kept the men alive and brought 

a rich harvest to the "news 

butchers" of the Long Island 

Railroad, though the labor of 

issuing them and issuing them 

fairly almost killed off the lieuten- 
ants. At first, only those with 

army uniforms could go — oh yes, 

white collars and all. Finally, the 

uniforms did come. Hats would 

insist upon covering only the back 

of the head, or else flopping down 

around the ears; despite the careful measuring, slee\es were too long, necks 

too big, leggings, size fi\e, wrapped looselx* about a number three leg, shoes 
a full inch too long, as the lieutenant had in- 
sisted upon giving them to you, the overcoat 
often looking like a bath robe. But with the 
uniform came a bit of swagger, a little thrill of 
pride, plenty of work for the new company 
tailor and — passes. 

IMindful of the first week's experience, 
'most any captain might have been heard 
addressing his tribe on IMonday morning: "I 
want no pathetic telegrams to come pouring 
in on me this Friday. I don't care to hear 
that Solomon Levinsky has to be present 
Saturday morning, at the winding up of his 
pants business. Warn your grandmothers, aged

vestibule until your turn for pass comes 'round." 



A HISTORY OF THE 3 05th INFANTRY 



It was soon noised about that all Jews would be permitted to go to the 
city for the celebration of Yom Kippur. A knock was heard at a certain 
orderly room door. In the gloomy hallway stood a big, strapping fellow who 

made known his desire for 
a pass. 

"You want to go in for 
Yom Kippur?" 
"Yiss, sorr." 
"WTiat's your name?" 
"Patrick Shea." 
Good old Pat ; one of the 
best fighting Irishmen that 
ever struggled through the 
Argonne with his back- 
breaking burden, a Hotchkiss 
machine gun. Nearly every- 
body in the Regiment knew 
Pat Shea, of the Machine Gun 
Company, and felt mighty 
in the last few minutes of the war. 




yoii see. Sir, I had 
business to 



bitter when he lost his life at the Aleuse, 

It was after explaining the different facings to a bunch of recruits that 
an officer gave the sudden command, "Right Face!" The execution was far 
from perfect. 

" What's the matter with that man? I said, ' Right Face,' not ' Left Face.' " 

"Me no spigk English." 

About an hour later, it being Friday, the officer could have sworn that 
in response to his announcement concerning passes the same man answered: 
"Sure, I want a pass tomorrow." 

But there were compensations for your being denied a pass. " You knew 
that if you didn't get one, you would at least get a day off, and one of 'Dutch' 
Richert's juicy steaks," to quote from the reminiscences of F Company. 
"After inspection, there was plenty of fun in the old mess hall, 'Ed' Hoffman 
beating the box, the pool sharks playing 'Drop Dead' and old 'Dutch' behind 
his counter, all dressed in white like an Astorbilt chef, waving succulent beef- 
steak under the noses of the guys who had to go out on the morning train 
and who wouldn't get any. We lived high, there in camp, over the week-ends. 
So many of the boys going into the city made a big ration saving, and the 
money went into the company fund for chicken and ice cream and such 
things. And then, on Sunday, you'd meet your father, or your mother, or 
your sweetie at the eleven-thirty train. Not so bad, any wav you look 
at it." 

After parading around town of a Saturday with a new uniform on, it was 
pretty tough going back to camp on Sunday night, or on the Three A. M. 
"Owl," landing just in time for Reveille. No one was in any condition to 
drill on Monday, and the boys would stall around the Top Kicker for 



AT CAMP UPTON 



19 



In those days, 
sometimes the 



a while, looking for a detail that would keep them from drill. 
it was stump pulling which served as the hardening details 
whole battalion would turn out in a bod\-. 

In fact, our first offensive was under the command of Major Metcalf 
over a No-Man's-Land of Long Island brush and trees. One 15 Company 
veteran writes: "Armed with pick-mattocks, a.xes and brush cutters, the 
company marched dail\- to tlie task and all day long fought the foe with 
might and main. Caj^tain Purcell would go among his men, keei)ing up their 
morale, showing them personally how to use the axe. Some of his exhibitions 
were very — er, very. 'The will to use the bush-hook,' we'd cry, and go to 
it. After two months of such work, thin men increased unbelievably and 
stout men lost their excess weight; best of all, the jungle became a fine parade 
ground. Then came the work of clearing for the rifle range; but that was 
easier, for every organization in the Division took over a sector." 

B}- the middle of November, things had settled down and were running 
smoothly, everyone feeling fairly well experienced, and believing that the 
trenches were not very far off. Still, the manual of arms, executed at first 
with the ancient and honorable Krag-Jorgensens, later with the new Win- 
chesters, was rather rough in .sj>ots. In the Second Battalion, it even hap- 
pened that the ofticers were stood up jiublicly by Major Dall for drill in tlae 
art of criticism; but the appreciative mob which collected failed to appreciate 
that qualifying fact, and could not disguise its enjoyment of something which 
appeared to be the disciplining 
of their officers. „ - , ' "~r aroumo camp' 

The first schools for the 
training of non-commissioned 
officers had turned out some ex- 
cellent men, with abudding taste 
for authority. Yet the ofilicers 
have never ceased to regret the 
theorv' of the Division Comman- 
der who forbade the placing of 
any real responsibilities upon 
the shoulders of our non-coms 
Far better it would have been at 
camp and throughout all our 
subsequent e.xperience, if it hac 
not always been required that 
an officer be present, whether dl 
the fairly simple task of filling a 
bedsack, or at an incon- 
sequential gathering of any sort. 

It was all very much like going to school again. For some — for many, 
rather, there was the English school; much of our soldier material couldn't 
even speak the language. Imagine the difficulties of teaching the rudiments 




20 



A HISTORY OF THE 3 5th INFANTRY 



of military art to men, however willing, who 
couldn ' t understand ; officers have had some- 
times to get right down on their hands and 
knees to show by actual physical persuasion 
()\v to "advance and plant the left foot." 
I magine, too, the difficulties of teaching the 
open order as prescribed in the I. D. R., 
and as advocated by the foreign instructors 
in all its diverse ramifications. Imagine 
tr_\ing to teach the methods of patroll- 
ing, or posting an outguard. After dis- 
coursing for three long hours, a lieutenant 
was finally satisfied that every man in his 
platoon had a passable idea of an outpost, 
outguard, picket, etc. Looking over his 
men, he asked the company barber: "WTiat is a picket?" The young 
man spoke right up, thoroughly sure of his ground, "Oh, yess, vat iss a 
picket? A picket iss a board mit sticks tacked on it." 

A period of intensive training brought instructors from overseas, shortly 
after Christmas. Having read endlessly of the Western Front and filled with 
the glamour of the trenches, we were thrilled to see and hear the men who had 
been there. Captain Nicot, charming personally, interesting in his lectures on 
bombs, but far more interesting when recounting far into the night his vivid, 
intimate tales of life in the trenches; the diminutive Lieutenant Geismar 
holding forth in broken English upon the intricacies of the French Chauchat 
auto-rifle — the "Ford Rifle" 




"Jitney Gun " as the men called 
it — pointing out ze movabble an' 
ze Jix-ed parts: "An' now, ze 
barrel I catch, she get coughed. 
Coughed I Do you not know 
what I say? C-a-u-g-h-t ! 
Coughed I" 

And Lieutenant Poire, 
too — Henri Poire, who went 
every step of the way with 
the Three Hundred and Fifth. 
At first, we thought of him as 
the champion blackboard artist 
of the world. He could erect 
and erase more and dustier 
battlefields than perhaps any 
other man living. Many an 
afternoon the great Y. M. C. A. 
haU on Eighth Street was 




AT CAMl' ITIUX 



jammed to ovcrtlowing with snoring, appreciative officers. They ai)i)reciated 
the rest. "1 love these lectures by dear old Poire," one of them was heard 
to remark at the hour of dismissal. "If I weren't required to be here, I'd be 
ordered out on something tremendously arduous, and then I'd never get any 
sleep at all." 

''Very interesting and heljiful talk we've had tonight from Lieutenant 
Poire of the French Army," (ieneral \Vittenm\er would say. "But you'll 
find it all set down very clearly in your little blue bonk, the Platoon Com- 
mander's Manual." 

For the officers, the first blood-curdling thrills of the ba>-onet schools had 
been almost exhausted at Plattsburg. Their imaginations were stirred anew, 
however, by the vigor and originality of the burly British Sergeant-Major 
Covington, fresh from the training grounds of France. "In, out, on guar(il" 
became the popular catch-phrase, though scarcely more often heard than 
" Around me MOVE ! " and " Carry On." It was here that Lieutenant " Jim " 
Loughborough experienced a revelation, in which he saw himself as a future 
Master of the Bayonet, spearing eight (lermans single-handed, in mortal 
combat on the banks of the Vesle. 

The authorities apparently thought we might haw to do a little wrestling 
with the Boche, so they opened up a course in jiu-jitsu. Peculiar methods of 
choking and resuscitation seemed to be the Jap's chief stock in trade. It was 
Lieutenant "Phil" Gray who first submitted to the experience of being "[uit 
out cold," just to know how it seemed; whereu])on many others had the 
courage to follow suit.

A HISTORY OF THE 3 05 th INFANTRY 




Camp Upton in Winter. 



"Terrible Tony" Loughborough, as the lieutenant was called by the 
Signal Platoon, dropped in one afternoon to watch Colonel Smedberg and 
Lieut.-Colonel Rhea pairing off. Mr. Men Smith, the instructor, inquired 
if the lieutenant would like to join in. Assenting, he was matched against 
"Moocher" Rosenquest, private, who, for once in his life, displayed ambition 
— a strong desire to strangle the "loot." To quote the Headquarters Com- 
pany Historian, "he pressed and squeezed in forty different ways, not knowing 
that he had the lieutenant nearly dead of suffocation. How was he to know? 
There was no clapping of the victim's hands — token of surrender. Sergeant 
"Dan"Bunny, of "Bunny's Trained Fleas," oneof Loughborough's Intelligence 
squad, maliciously gave his buddy, Rosenquest, the high sign to press still 
harder, thoroughly enjoying the massacre of his chief. 'My God, man!' 
exclaimed Smith, happening along, ' do you wish to kiU the lieutenant? Let 
him go!' i\nd then, after vigorous denunciation, 'Quite correct, Lieutenant, 
you failed to clap your hands.' Unfortunately, no one had ever informed 
him of the distress signal." 

Nor to be forgotten are the old Sniping, Observation and Scouting courses 
in the "German" trenches out beyond the Depot Brigade; nor the three 
weeks' engineering course during the most brutal weather of Long Island's 
most brutal winter — when digging a practice trench with anything less sharp 
than an axe was impossible, when the boring of holes in the frozen ground for 
the construction of gabions, fascines and hurdles took hours to accomplish, 
particularly when someone of the class had the foresight to construct a huge 
bonfire. 



AT CAMP UPTON 



Many a day was spent indoors on ac- 
count of the cold, the thermometer at times 
venturing to twenty below zero. The wind 
whistled through the chinks of the draughty 
barracks; the cannon stoves waxed red hot; 
the thud of riiie butts on the mess hall floor 
resounded early and late. There was little 
else to do — until evening. New York never 
knew what really good times we had then ; 
thought us abused and discontented, perhaps. 
When winter had put an end to baseball and football, the Y. M. C. A. 
huts, the K. C. club rooms and halls were crowded, always populous with the 
eternal letter writers, the book worms or the roistering mob eagerly supporting 
their company show, a boxing contest, or a basketball game. Movies, too, 
and later a Liberty Theatre with gcninuc New York attractions. Or wafted 
over the "campus" on the dusty, gusty, night breeze might be heard the nasal 
whine of a straining cjuartctte: 




I took out ten thousand, Insurance; 

For bonds I gave fifteen bucks more ; 
To wifey and mother 
I 'lotted another 

Ten dollars, and then furthermore 
I ran up big bills at the Laundn,-, 
And finally pay day was there. 

I went up for my dough. 

But the answer was "NO I 
You've already drawn more than your share." 

— or perhaps the roar of a hundred voices rending "Robbie's" war-song limb 
from limb : 

.\t our hike and drill, 

To work with all our will, 

And fmd it fun to take a gun 

And "One, Two, Three, P^our." 

Put in every step, 

All our punch and pep. 

So we'll be one to hit the Hun 

An awful wallop! 

With English and with French, 

We'll leap from out our trench, 

'T-will be to see Democracy sur\ive; 

And we'll open up a gap — 

Push the Kaiser ofT the map, 

Wlien the Three-0-Five begins its drive.

Another favorite: 

There's only one side that can win — 

That's the Allies' side, of course,

The idea, of course, was that we'd go over the top a'singing. "A singing 
army is a winning army," roared the long-haired leader from the War Camp 
Community to the entire Dixasion which was subjected in groups to his 
tutelage, the only recollection of which is "Keep your head down, AUemand," 
and its numerous parodies. 

But anon, the lights in a fleet of brilliant barracks would 
wink out, dimmed by the unpopular bugler, and calm 
would reign, punctuated only by the steady tread of a nearby 
sentry walking post. How he delighted to halt the belated 
pedestrian, particularly the officers returning late to quarters 
after their midnight inspection of barracks to see that all 
bunks were thoroughly partitioned off, as prescribed, by the 
hanging shelter-halves, and that the rows and rows of snoring 
men were following instructions, reaUy sleeping " head to foot." 
An officer was thus one night halted by an ine.\perienced sentry. 
"Halt! Who is there?" 
"Officer of the Camp." 
"Halt! Who is there?" 
"Officer of the Camp." 

"H-halt. Who the Devil are you, anyhow?" 
"OFFICER OF THE CAMP." 

"Then get the hell out o' here, quick; my orders is to challenge three 
times and then shoot!" 

February brought no let-up in the disagreeable weather, which greeted 
still another quota of recruits, entirely new to the game, lorded over by the 
remaining old-timers, stuck with the needle, outfitted and launched upon 
the now familiar course of rudimentary training. In November, December, 
February, and again in March, each company had been sifted down to a mere 
hundred or so; all over again, the company commander would have to organize 
his unit, re-size and re-distribute his men in order to balance the platoons! 
start in once more upon the rudiments of drill, spend long days at the rifle 
range teaching the infant mind to shoot. For it seemed that we might become 
a depot division; time after time, our ranks were depleted in order to bring 




AT CAMP UPTON 




another unit up to combat strc-nj^th. In those 
days, the mere receipt of a \vw blue barrack 
bags, not then an article of general equip- 
ment, would be the signal for deep agitation 
within the Regiment, it being ])opularly sup- 
posed that the men who had fallen into disfavor 
would be sent to Atlanta, Ceorgia, or, as it 
seemed in our eyes, to some other undesirable camp. That was not always 
the reason for their going; it was a matter of necessity. Popularly sung to 
the tune of "Marching through Georgia" was the parody, "Look out, look 
out! You'll get the bag of ])lue." 

But along with February's blustering weather came the rumor that the 
Division would reallv not become a depot; that it would really go, soon. 
More than rumor, it' proved to be. General Johnson, who took command 
while General Bell was abroad, gathered the officers together and announced 
that he had reported the Division ready! 

Ready! It was time that New York should see what a Ime body of 
troops she had sent down to the Long Island camp. On December ninth, 
eight thousand people had witnessed two performances at the Hippodrome 
of "A Day at Camp Upton," prepared by Lieutenant James E. Schuyler and 
enacted bv two hundred and eighty selected doughboys. New York was en- 
thusiastic' enough, and vielded up .$18,000 profit, which was once mtended 
to be used for the erecti'on of a winter drill hall. Luckily, a compromise 
was effected wherebv onlv the greater portion of it was wasted upon a huge 
tent, in which all of 'two shows were given prior to our departure, the balance 
being distributed among the regimental and company funds. Many a good 
dinner came out of those funds during the tedious, sodden months which 
followed the armistice. 

Again, Canada had been shown what New ^'ork was accomphshmg m 
the way of an army, when a select little coterie of the Hippodrome veterans 
journeyed to Montreal to participate in the Canadian Victor>' Loan Parade^ 
royally dined and entertained in leading hotels and Pullmancars, so different 
— oh, so different from our subsequent means of transportation. 

New York was to be shown. Not sufficient were the reviews held at 
Camp Upton; a parade was necessary. In preparation thereof the Regiment 
would march to the aggravating thumpings of the bass drum, up and down, 
up and down, in platoon front. .\nd about that time, too— whether by way 
of preparation for the parade or for our future hikings in France no one can 
say— there was instituted a system of battalion night marches, which dis- 
pleased everyone immensely. There would usually be a thaw, the night of 
the party. The Third Battalion delights in telling how Adjutant Grafmuller, 
who spent most of his time rushing up and down the length of the column, as 
a test of liaison perhaps, was not ver\- sure-footed and, as a result, was usually 
either picking himself out of a pud'dle, or falling into another one. Occa- 
sionally, the guide would become lost, jnitling e\-eryone into a sweet humor. 



A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 




While passing the Negro 
Barracks one night, there was 
j a rush of dark figures to the 
curbing. 

"Wha's de matter, Boss?" 
yelled a Darky. 

"Why, ain't you heard? 
The war's over!" 

"Whoopee!" the delighted 
rejoinder. 

Encouraged by the ap- 
parent credulity of repeated 
questioners the same doughboy 
attempted the sameextravagant 
replies again and again. 

"Say, wha's all de rumpus 
ovah?" 

"Why, ain't you heard? 
The war's over!" 

"Yeah," came the scorn- 
ful reply the last time. "I'll bet yo' wisht it was!" 

Washington's Birthday was selected for the parade, the movement 
beginning with the entraining of the Three Hundred and Fifth on the morning 
of the twenty-first. All along the route, eager crowds cheered the future 
Argonne fighters on their long journey up First Avenue to Fifty-ninth Street, 
thence down Fifth Avenue to Madison Square. The parade was a great 
triumph, despite the snow and the slippen,^ pavements— ruinous to the dignity 
of many a blushing doughboy or proud officer. Impartial critics expressed 
sincere admiration for the appearance, carriage and evident discipline of the 
troops, who erect, proud and purposeful, marched with a swing and a snap 
and a precision truly remarkable. Half of the men, and most of the city felt 
that we might move directly to the port. And, however much the prospect 
of leaving home ma>- have saddened the stoutest hearts, there were few men 
who looked forward with any degree of pleasure to another period of drillful 
waiting. 

But there was uch to be done, before the Division could leave. We had 
to return to Camp. The tables of infantry equipment, very uninteresting 
but highly imaginative, demanded that each man carry on his person, in his 
pack or in the barrack bag, nearly everything but the kitchen stove— a hideous 
amount of equipment, all very pretty and possible for garrison but a terrible 
handicap in the field, or even in training. All of it had to be issued, reissued 
and marked. Early and late, the mechanics tapped and hammered the num- 
bers, names and unit designations on leather and metal; the painters lost sleep 
over the job of marking the web equipment, blankets, bedsacks and bags. 
Inspections which proved that a man couldn't keep his two "laces, shoe, raw- 



AT CAMP UP T () X 



hide, extra" more than two minutes were held morning, noon and midnight; 
awful tales were told of company commanders being turned back in disgrace 
from the gang plank because one man of the unit lacked a single sock of the 
required five pairs. Five pairs! These were parlous times — worse even than 
the old regular Saturday morning inspections with their frost-bitten ears and 
subsequent mad dashes toward the New York trains. 

"Have you a tooth-brush?" 

"Yes, sir." 

"Let me see it." Whereupon the soldier would pull from a grimy pocket 
a still grimier tooth-brush with which he had been cleaning his rifle. 

An ominous twenty-four-hour leave in which to attend to final business 
affairs was granted early in April. The advance party of the Division had 
sailed. On Palm .Sunday, it seemed that every woman within a radius of a 
hundred miles came to see Johnny off; the camp never looked so decorative; 
tearful wives, mothers and sweethearts were there by the thousands to say 
"Good-by." Yet the agony had all to be gone through with again, another 
week-end. At last, on Sunday norning, the fourteenth, we were told to line 
up and empty our bedsacks of straw and to pack the barrack bags— more fuss 
than a bride might have packing her trousseau. Repeated formations; 
repeated inspections, eliminating this and that. Yet some of the boys carried 
away enough to stock a country store. Then, in the night, barracks were 
policed for the last time ere the troops marched silently to the waiting trains — 
a secret troop mox-ement which ail the world could have known about. Not

a man was absent from his 
place, a fact which speaks 
wonderfully for the spirit and 
discipline of these New York 
boys, about to leave home, the 
most wonderful city and 
the most wonderful people in the 
world— about to undertake 
the most difficult and heart- 
breaking job of their lives. 

At the very first stage of 
the journey, a most lamentable 
accident occurred, the derail- 
ment of a train bearing a greater 
part of the Second Battalion. 
"Just as everybody was falling 
asleep over his equipment, it 
seemed as though everv'thing 
began falling all over everything 
else. Therewasaterriblerumble 
and a crash and a grinding — and darkness; terrible moaning as someone 
crawled out from under the pile of seats, packs, rifles, glass and dirt, to strike 
a match. We were lying on the ceiling of the cars, gazing through the debris 
up toward the floor. Somebody chopped a hole through the floor, through 
which we clambered only to find the whole train in the same topsy-turvy 
condition. By the light of huge bonfires hastily kindled, the rescue work 
went on. Three of our good pals were killed ; Murphy, Mohan and Hudson, 
and sixty others were so badly injured that they didn't come across with us. 
Back to camp went the trainload for replacements. And that same afternoon, 
we staggered up the gang plank, looking as if just returning from France, 
instead of going." 

THE SONG OF THE SOLDIER 

Take the very blood within me. 

Pour it in the carnaged gore; 
It can be no more the noble 

Than the gifts of those before. 
Oh! the pain that waits beyond me 

May be more than I can bear, 
But the heart that throbs within me 

Knows me eager for my share. 



There was laughter where my pathway led in days of long ago, 

And the coming generation, — they must find it even so; 

There were schools that I attended, shaded groves in which to stroll, 



AT CAMP UPTOX 3^ 

And a just God dealt the measure by an old and ancient scroll ; 
There were garlands by the wayside with their fragrance all for me; 
There were tender thoughts to woo me when my dreams were young and free; 
There were tender loves to cheer me, wondrous hopes in hours of ease, — 
To the coming generation, — we must leave a share of these! 

Bring the shriek of battle round me. 

Throw me headlong in the flame, 
I may tremble, weaken, cower. 

But I'll soldier just the same. 
Spare me! God, I could not ask it, 

WTien the Cause is wholly Thine; 
All I ask of Tnee is courage 

And a goal beyond the line. 

There were cities builded for me; there were comforts never few, 

And no threatening foreign tyrant shall make them less for )ou; 

There was all a dreamer envied, all a dreamer craved, 

And now a Freedom's Conquest caUs that it be saved. 

We shall go with Glory silent, not one voice to cheer. 

Not one friendly handclasp, not one falling tear; — 

We can lay on Freedom's altar only that which Freedom gave, 

Nor applause, nor tender partings will we need to keep us brave. 

This is the song of the soldier. 

Finding a voice in a pen, 
Lost, perhaps, in the millions 

WTio champion the cause of Men; 

This is the heart of the soldier. 

Wistful and longing and young. 
There at the stern of the transport 

Wishing the song were sung; 

Watching his Liberty Goddess 

Cirow dim in the land behind, — 
Knowing the tug at his heartstrings 

Is meant for men of his kind; 

These are the dreams of the soldier 

Who prays he'll never forsake, 
And such are the dreams of the millions 

WTio yet follow in his wake.

CHAPTER II 

THE CROSSING 

WHAT! Everybody gotta go below decks! Not to have one last, long, 
lingering look at the harbor — at Old Girl Libert}- whose shape adorns 
all our baggage? There was nothing secret about the way we boarded 
the Cedric and the Vauhanl Despite the fact that when our ferry-boats 
steamed from Long Island City around the Battery to the piers the skyscrapers 
of lower New York waved countless handkerchiefs, and that whistles tooted 
like mad, someone thinks that if we all keep below while the transport steams 
down the Harbor in broad daylight no German Secret Service agent will sus- 
pect for a moment that American troops are crowded aboard! Oh, well, let's 
try to get a thrill out of fooling ourselves even though we fool nobody else. 

And must even the port-holes be closed up tight? Phew! It's stufTy 
enough below decks with 'em open. Just look at what we've got to sleep in, 
row upon row, double tier, scarcely room between those dividing boards for 
the shoulders to fit in, to say nothing of letting one roll over and be com- 
fortable. 

"As for those port-holes — keep your hands olf them, shut or open. 
Nobody but the crew is to touch them; they will open 'em up in the morning, 
and close 'em up at night." 

" and no man will be allowed to carry matches. Hand over all you 

have." (Wonder if he knows they are on sale at the canteen down on Deck D?) 

" and don't throw anything overboard, cigarette butts, papers or 

food scraps. (Perhaps it is that the hungry submarine crews, long at sea 
and sceuting food, will track us.) 

"Put your life belt on — no, you've got it hind side before; tie it down 
securel\- so that it won't crash up against }our chin and break your neck when 
you have to jump into the sea. Don't take it oil until you reach Liv — er, 
er, until you land." 

"Find out the number of your life-boat and go to it promptly- the moment 
you hear the drill call." 

"Keep your bunks policed constantly and la}- out your ecjuipment in the 
manner prescribed, each morning, (iet out on deck by eight-thirty, and 
staj' out." 

"Your green card that \-ou got at the gang plank shows what your 
sitting is in the mess hall. Be on time, or you're out o' luck." 

And so on. 

Perhaps it was just as well to preclude the heart aches which a free 
view of the receding coastline might have produced, to let the men focus at 
once all their attention upon the inconveniences and novelties of their life 
aboard ship. There were many of both. Though First Sergeants ate in the 
main dining-room of the Cedric, the messing accommodations for the men in 




34 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

general were awful — crowded, rushed, confused, smelly and 
disagreeable, two or three sittings necessary. The fish was 
particularly discouraging, and fish-day was by no means 
limited to Friday. Already there was ample proof of the food 
shortage in England, if the service aboard an English vessel 
could be accepted as evidence. Many were the arguments 
and the fist fights precipitated by the insolent little buss-boys 
and the stewards. Particularly grating were the attempts to 
sell privileges, extra portions or favors by the crews. Those 
on the Vaiiban will not forget the gunner who frequently par- 
aded the top deck in all his glory, stinging the boys with his 
lemonade at five cents "per gloss." One afternoon, as he was 
shouting his old war cry, "Lemonade, nickel a gloss," Larry Sobecki inter- 
rupted him with: "I sye, ould choppie, fool the boys just once an' put a 
lemon in it." Not exactly a fight, this time, but the Englishman's 
angry retort: "Go wye, you bloomin' Yank; you 'aven't no bloody 
discipline hat all." 

Nobody was in very good humor those first days, anyhow. The Cedric 
was greatly overloaded, four thousand troops being jammed in where about 
eighteen hundred had previously been carried. Companies were split up and 
dragged around from one section of the ship to another, oftentimes the 
platoons separated in hopeless fashion, one platoon for'ard, another aft, two 
more tucked into the hold with the bilge. It was after being shifted two or 
three times that the disgusted Supply Company overheard one of the ship's 
ofiicers on the Caiwpic remark during his regular morning inspection: "1 

think we'll take this company out of here and put them down in " 

"What's that you're going to do to my company now?" exclaimed Captain 
Buttner, while the bolts of a dozen service rifles cHcked in threatening fashion. 
Curiously, they were not again disturbed. 

Not disturbed excepting by the periodic drill held on their own diminu- 
tive portion of deck and at the particular time allotted to them, or excepting 
by the everlasting inspection of equipment — the knives, forks, spoons, tent 
pins and socks gradually evaporating — Lord knows where to. Enlisted men 
can give anybody lessons in losing things. And so useful, those tent-pins! 
Gradually, too, the four boxes of hard bread, reserve ration, which every man 
carried, became flap-eared and bedraggled, the blue meat tins battered and 
lost. 

Or eaten. 

It is hard enough to sleep in a hole with a hundred other men, in an 
uncomfortable, narrow, board bunk, to be cheated out of a half-hour's rest 
each morning by the daily eastward progress of the convoy and by the con- 
sequent readjustment of the clocks, hard enough to be roused betimes for the 
eternal inspection, drill and policing — why, we cleaned portions of those vessels 
for the first time in their respective careers; but atop of aU this, to take one's 
turn at guard duty is mighty inconvenient! 



THE CROSSlNCr 



At one of the eighty-seven useless posts aboard the Ccdric stood guard a 
big Swede, transferred with hundreds of other comparatively untrained men 
to the Three Hundred and 1' ifth from Cam]) Devens on the eve of our departure 
from Upton in order to bring us uj) to the required two hundred and fifty mt-n 
per company. The Officer of the Day, most of whose duties arc performed 
at night, while inspecting the guard asked this man what his special orders 
were. 

"Ahungh!" grinned the round face of the Swede. "Ay bane ka])e feller 
from das blace." .\n(l judging from the bulk of him and the determined way 
in which he gri])i)ed his riile, it seemed as if he might even be able to jirevent 
a torpedo from intruding upon the sacred confines of his post. 

Colonel Smedberg, sauntering on the deck of the Ccdric one e\ening was 
challenged: "Hey, youse can't go jjast dis gate!" 

"Is that the way you have been taught to challenge?" 

"Oh, I see you're one of them there lootenants. Pass on." 

"What do you call this?" asked the colonel, indicating the silver eagle 
on his shoulder. 

"Oh, er, er," stammered the sentry. "Why, it's a BIRD!" 

But all of the guard details were not so irksome; in fact, the Submarine 
Patrol, men selected for their intelligence and keen eyesight to stand upon 
the bridge, in the crow's nest and at other privileged points of vantage, derived 
considerable thrill from the importance of their work, being required during 
the tour of duty to detect and report the lurking periscope. 

"Say — look at this compass. We're headed southwest! Are we going 
to the Panama Canal? Holy smoke, now look at it! Veering 'round to the 
north. Halifax, without a doubt. And now, I'll be darned if she hasn't 
swung 'round to the southeast. We're going to the Mediterranean, sure! 
Naw, she's simply trying to throw the submarines off the track." 

The northern route it i)ro\-ed to be, for presently our small convoy was 
met by those ships bearing another portion of the Division which had put 
out from Halifax, and by an American cruiser, making thirteen vessels in all. 
The superstitious were accused of lingering at the rail for hours, hoping for 
the addition or subtraction of a vessel or t\\o, and under no circumstances to 
be separated from their life-preservers. 

Others, too, lingered at the rail ; for one day of our generally pacific vo\-age 
was marred by a tremendous plunging and rolling. Then it was that the food 
seemed particularly bad, almost useless, in fact. Much of it was thrown awa_\', 
despite the existing orders to drop nothing overboard. 

It was not until after reaching the so-called Danger Zone, 
on the twenty-sixth, that a real submarine scare developed. 
On that day, upon our first glance at the sea, it was a]i])arent 
that a group of destroyers had met the con\oy which then, 
flanked on either side by four or five "tin-lizzies of tlu' sea" 
constantly zig-zagging in and out. assumed e\'er t:hanging form

tions — now massed, now greatly elongated, first in a sort of diamond formation, 
then in column of two's, then staggered — the maneuvering of the vessels and 
the constant signaling back and forth proving of great interest. 

The afternoon skv was bright and the sea as smooth as glass. Troops were 
sunning themselves lazily on deck; officers lounged about in the smoking- 
rooms. In the midst of calm and quiet was suddenly felt a dull, ominous 
thud, much as if the hull of the vessel had grounded upon a submerged rock, 
repeated again and again in rapid succession. Stokers left their boilers, cooks 
left their soup, the sea-sick forgot their illness; men ran up from the baths 
clad only in life-belts, making the deck with a hop, skip and a jump, while 
others proceeded sedately (camouflage, of course) to inquire where the torpedo 
had struck. Somebody hit up the old refrain: "Throw out the Hfe-Iine." 
One of the destroyers, darting up through the lane of transports, was suddenly 
seen to turn about almost within its own length and race headlong down the 
column again, dropping depth bombs on the way. Some will tell you with 
evident pride that a torpedo just grazed the bow of their vessel; others, that 
at least six periscopes appeared immediately astern; others that the well- 
known proverbial oil was seen to come to the surface. It was ever easy to 
discern periscopes. Anyhow, the gunners on the stern took things calmly 
enough, some remarking that they had never yet seen a periscope, others 
seizing the opportunity to relate to eager ears how many times they had been 
attacked on the last trip over. 

The boat drill did appear a bit more seriously regarded that afternoon; 
and it was quite apparent that Major Woodward, obliged to take a position 
in Sir Ernest Shackleton's boat, was one of the lightest hearts aboard. 

The suppressed submarine thrill was not the only form of amusement. 
Among the few civilian passengers aboard the Cedric were the Archbishop of 
York, who seemed to think the war hopelessly lost, and Sir Ernest Shackleton, 
the noted Antarctic e\i)lorer, whose discourses were tremendously interesting. 
Among the troops were a number of corking entertainers who on many an 
evening filled the smoking-room with music and jest and noise. Major 
Woodward managed to stir up a bit of entertainment with his succession of 
rumors and practical jokes and a chess tournament which he instituted after 
triumphing over sc\eral of the other chess-fiends. Nor will the officers of the 
Second and Third Battalions and of Regimental Headquarters, on board the 
Cedric, forget how Lieut. -Colonel Winnia, then commanding the 304th 
Machine Gun Battalion, with shirt collar cleared for action and a pipe of 
tobacco handy, was continuously at home to the officers, and with whar 
absorbing interest they watched him day after day, lancing an old Gettysburg 
map with multi-colored pins. 

April twenty-seventh found us toward afternoon in English waters, our 
escorts seemingly more active than ever; near this point, someone soberly 
whispered, the Lusitania was sunk. Well, if we ever got to France, we'd 
show the Germans what a mistake they made when they sent all those inno- 
cent folk to the bottom! And there, presently, loomed the distant cliffs of 



THE ("ROSSINC; 




Wales. A welcome sight! Who wouhl e\er have thought, ^ 
a year ago, that at this time we would ])e sojourning on the ^, 
far side of the globe? How preposterous, that we should ha\e 
left our shops and trades and other diverse interests for this! 
Come; bring on the excitement; let's get into it! 

Now the vessels were assuming a new formation, 
jiarently stringing out into single file. Could anybody 
the wig-wag messages flashed by the adroit signalmen from the 
bridge? We strained our eyes and our field glasses in 
\-ain, picking up only a word here and there, mindful of all the hours spent 
in signaling, back in camp — how two squads would line up, opposite each 
other; if the squad reading the message could not make it out there was no 
harm done; all that was necessary was to shout out, "We didn't get it; what 
was the last word?" and the message in full would be shouted back. 

The gray outlines of Liverpool and an enormous advertisement for 
Spratt's Dog Cakes greeted our eyes at five A. T.I., as we rose Sunday morning, 
the twenty-eighth of A]5ril, our ships riding at anchor in the Mersey. Por- 
tentous, the men agreed; if they hadn't already eaten many a dog-biscuit on 
the way over, they were due for some. And there, just as the Ccdric was 
warped in to the clock, a vivid touch of home: a real, li\e Ford touring car 
bowhng down the wharf, greeted by a roar of eager anproxal from tlie populous 
decks. 

Missing nary a chance to hiu-l a friendly insult at the majestic English 
bobbies in the neighborhood of the railroad station, the men proceeded at 
once to the trains, moved to laughter by a sight of their tin}- six-wheeled 
and four-wheeled compartment cars and by the absurd little freight cars 
presently to be seen as the long train gathered momentum on its journey 
southward. 

To train for several months in the British camp at Winchester, was the 
general verdict, as we swept through the budding countryside, through villages 
of tidy, red-roofed houses or through the more i)opulous cities such as Leicester, 
where girls at the station served hot coffee, where women and girls and little 
boys and old men waved a God-speed to the Yanks. Some might have been 
a little suqirised to find the railroad stations just as fully plastered with signs, 
particularly those advertising beverages, as those in America. "What station 
is this?" someone inquired as the train slowed down perceptibly. "Wliy." 
said a lieutenant knowingly, and in all seriousness, "this is— er, BOVRIL." 

To be landed at Dover after a ten-hour ride, could mean only one thing: 
there would be no training period in England. A sight of the steej), steej) 
hill leading to Dover Castle, meant still another thing: that after lugging 
those murderous packs up the long grade, five thousand young men of America 
would be ready for whatever the British could offer in the way of a ration 
and a night's sleep. Despite their present initiation to the light British supper 
of tea, biscuit and marmalade, and the prosjjcct of sleeping on the bare board 
floors of the old stone barracks looming high abo\e the harbor, many had the 



3S A HISTORY OF T H F: ,U) 5 t h INFANTRY 

energj^ and the curiosity to wander back into the seaport town to see what 
they could see. 

The sky was gray and the wind bitter cold. Those who gathered 'round 
the scanty fire in the British ofticers' club, listening intently to the post com- 
mandant, a wounded colonel, whose false right hand hung uselessly at his 
breast, felt that the war was coming very close. Current English newspapers 
told of the fall of Kemmel and of the almost certain loss of Calais in conse- 
quence. If the wind were just right, the thunder of distant cannon might be 
heard across the Channel. There in the harbor lay the battered hulk of the 
cruiser Vindictive, just returned from its heroic night raid on Zeebrugge. 
They listened in rapt attention to a recital of that famous e.xploit, as night 
came on and the windows were darkened against the possibility of German 
bombing i)lanes. Nor were hearts any less sober the next morning when we 
gathered on the quay for transportation across the Channel. A sentry striding 
the breakwater looked, oh, so realistic, in his full kit: helmet, gas mask, car- 
tridge belt, rifle and fixed bayonet! He must have come right out of the 
trenches we had read so much about. Good old Chaplain Browne, too, had 
straight dope that morning, which he whispered in confidence to some of the 
officers; that the Germans were breaking through toward the coast; that 
before night we would be digging somewhere in the support trenches; that 
the British felt Calais to be doomed, and that we were simph' being fed to 
the slaughter. 

Is it any wonder then, that the Channel passage seemed the most fiendish 
journey ever devised? It is thought by some that a destroyer put out from the 
breakwater in company with the one or two small steamers which bore the 
Regiment across; but nobody saw them after we fell off the towering crest of 
wave number one into the trough between that and mountainous wave num- 
ber two. How we e\Tr got over that second wave, and the next and the 
next, no one knows — except maybe the one or two copper-lined creatures who 
weren't seasick.

WAXEN, pale green faces leaned over the rail as Ihv ilny ('lian;icl 
steamers found smooth water and approached the wharves at Calais. 
From the landing stage, some British Tommies rudely inquired: "I 
sye, are you going to the war? Why, you're half dead now!" We were; and 
not at all enlivened by a sight of the long hospital train at the nearby station, 
with all its blood and bandages. Things were going badly at the front. 

Through the rain and the confusion on shore, through a maze of ambu- 
lances, all driven by women, the Regiment found its way to Rest Camp No. 6, 
East, past swarm after swarm of tenacious urchins either selling their sandy 
chocolate, bitter candies and sugarless cakes, or screaming, "Souvenir Ameri- 
caine; penny, penn-ee!" And still farther on and on, through deep, shifting 
sand, past gangs of German prisoners at work, to the "rest" camp. "Oh, 
you Dutchmen; wait till we get a crack at you!" With that first hike, our 
troubles started. 

"Look at the dinky tents they're going to put a whole scjuad into!" was 
the derisive cheer which greeted the rows on rows of conical tents. Imagine 
the disgust when a round dozen men were told off into each of them, which 
were sunk into the ground a couple of feet, and surrounded by a two-foot wall 
of sandbags, as protection against the lateral burst of aerial bombs; for night 
raids on Calais were of regular occurrence. 

Released for an hour or two in which to get rid of their sea-legs and a 
portion of their last pay, men wandered uj)town with passes to explore the 
questionable delights of the ancient city now darkened at night and showing 
evidence of recent raids. The doughboys' curiosity is insatiable. In Calais, 
the officers quickly began to discover that the English, with their ubiquitous 
clubs and messes, had at least learned to make themselves fairly comfort- 
able, despite the war. 

And no sooner were most of the explorers herded back within the wire 
gates of the camp at the appointed hour of nine-thirty, by those unlucky 
enough to be posted as sentries — only one of whom lost his rifle that night 
while on post — than the Boche aeroj^lanes came over. Like the drowsy hum 
of swarming bees could be heard overhead the ominous whir of the powerful 
Mercedes motors — a sound which everv'one rapidly learned to loathe and 
detest. "Cr-r-umph, croomph," fell the bombs, while everyone, according to 
instructions, lay close to the ground near the sheltering sandbags, although 
the attack occurred at some distance from the camp. 

That was apparently too much for the Chinese Coolies, employed as 
laborers by the British and quartered in droves hard by our section of camp. 
Ordinarily a happy, noisy lot, they had already serenaded us with their weird 
music, though had anyone been able to "parley Chinee," they might have 



40 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

been urged politely to desist. While the Boche planes bombed Calais, the 
Coolies attacked the Boche prisoners. Hospitality and brotherly love was 
scarcely their motto; for next morning, having forgotten their enmity toward 
the common foe, their gentle demonstrations became more personal and inti- 
mate: they staged an honest-to-goodness Tong War, opening up a number of 
skulls, perhaps to make us think of New York's Chinatown. Such diverting 
little outbreaks were not infrequent, we were told. 

Oh, think of those days back at Upton when we "stood inspection," when 
we checked and rechecked the mass of equipment preparatory to the crossing, 
and were charged for articles short! Here in Calais, much of the labor of days 
and nights was undone. The blue barrack bags with all they contained — the 
extra uniform, the campaign hat, dress shoes, knitted wear, personal articles 
of ever>^ description and the comfort kits so patiently turned out and presented 
by the thoughtful women of our own Auxiliary were dumped into a pile 
and bidden adieu. 

In exchange for them, men and officers received a steel helmet and gas 
mask, after marching for hours to the "gas-chamber," where one or two 
imagined that they were actually in a hea\y concentration of the deadly 
fumes and swooned artistically. 

And oh, for the days at Camp Upton, where the efforts of the Mess 
Sergeant and the " greaseballs " were aU too scantily appreciated. The 
bread-cheese-marmalade threat, heard at Dover, was proving a fact. We had 
just suffered the gas-mask-helmet-hike episode, returning to the "rest" 
camji late for tea — the Tommie calls his supper " tea." All we rested at that 
camp were our stomachs. Cooks had not been notified that the Headcjuarters 
Company would be late; so, it was necessarj^ to make another "G. I." can 
of tea, while the men waited outside the mess-shack. Though supposed to 
be efficient at flag waving, they certainly were not gifted with the quality of 
patience. No hungry soldier is. Beating on the door, they yelled a number 
of uncomplimentar}- things at the management, least aggravating of which 
was, "Open up, you loafers, and let us in!" The Lance-Corporal inside, 
lowest ranking non-com in the British Army, shouted through a crack in 
the door, "You bloody, bloomin' Yanks, we waited three 
years for you; now you'D wait three minutes for us." That 
was altogether too good a gibe, thought the Headquarters 
Company who, beaten in argument, could still beat down 
the door, which they promptly did, utterly smothering 
Lance-Corporal in the ensuing rush. 

Another exchange was effected, the American Winchester 
rifles being turned in while the British Enfields and bayonets 
were issued. Just what did that mean? It certainly sug- 
gested that we were to be linked v/ith the British, somehow. 
Though not generally realized at the time, the 77th Division 
was to be stationed for its seasoning period in a position to 
back up the British behind the Arras front, virtually in 




FLANDERS 41 

reserve, to block the German advance, should the break occur. Tlie military 
situation was grave. Our seasoning was likely to be a sj^icy one. (icrmany 
was striking at the channel ports, England rather expecting her to rcacii 
them. To our inexperienced eyes, Calais seemed defended b}' a mere handful 
of Archies or anti-aircraft cannon. 

Accordingly the Regiment moved to the region centering about Lic(|ues 
in the Pas de Calais, on May 2d, there to be trained by what was left of the 
M)l\\ British Division — one of those which had borne the brunt of the March 
offensive and which had been ver\^ badly shot up, a mere skeleton. 

"There's a hot meal waiting for you at the end of the march," was the 
lure, the bait dangled under the noses of the Third Battalion as they struggled 
under a boiling sun; at two A. M. in a sudden rainstorm the}- made Alembon 
and Sanghem. It rained every other minute, in those days. No such rash 
promises having been made to the other battalions, in their case no memory' 
of a broken promise remained to embitter the delights of billeting. 

The whole Regiment had set out from Calais bright and early, ridden a 
few minutes on a freight train from Fontinettes station to Audricjue, there to 
take up their burden — winter overcoat an' ever'thing, for a long afternoon 
afoot. (Hieerful enough at the start of its first real march, the long column 
wound through a pleasant rolling country', over go\-crnment roads such as 
abound in France, bordered by stately trees, the Regimental Band essaying 
at first "to put in every step all their punch and pep" but rapidly growing 
weak — growing weak, as evidenced by the bass drum's utter loss of rhythm. 

In the midst of the afternoon a new contrivance, the rolling kitchen, 
oNertook us, greeted by a roar of approval which quickly changed to a groan 
of disgust after the "coffee" was sampled. Some got none, and remained 
i-onsiderably more vigorous than those who partook. 

Toward evening, as H and G Companies stumbled into Le Poirier for 
their initiation to the matter of billeting, the old school-teacher was in the act 
of Jurying a cow from one of his outbuildings requisitioned for lodgings, aj)- 
parently making excuses to the poor thing. "My Cod," exclaimed Lieut. 
Henderson, "if that cow can learn French, I can." 

Those who did not strip at once, to plunge into the frigid stream which 
ran through the village street, sought to exercise their meagre knowledge of 
French in bartering with the townfolk. The price of eggs went soaring. 
Sergeant Felder, of the Signal Platoon, knew that "egg" in French sounded 
something like "oof." He asked the madanie for two. " Woof, wcof," he said ; 
but the old lady certainly did not "compree." Undaunted, Frank picked up 
a handful of hay, shaping a little nest of it, in which he tenderly placed two 
round stones. Then he hopped around the yard, flapping his arms and 
shouting, "Cluck, cluck, cutaw-w-cut," whereupon the good woman's counte- 
nance brightened perceptibly. He got the eggs and his platoon's nomination 
to the post of interpreter. 

An unsigned contribution from A Comjiany reads: "I'll ne\er forget 
the long, thirteen-hour hike from Audrique to Licques. We were marched 




A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

through a muddy barnyard to a stable 
^ door and told to go in and make our- 

-. u , selves comfortable, and we were so tired 
.. '"''"' that we simply dropped on the floor 
^ of the dirty place. It was not until 
^\^^i morning that I thought again of my 
blistered feet; my partner woke me 
^iH: [I Mf ' '^P ^y rolling over on them in his sleep, 
li" and wouldn't got off em. 'For the love 

1 -loj^' o' Mike,' I said, 'get over on your own 
V . side and let me sleep.' Istruckamatch 
and found, to my great surprise, 
that my partner was a two hundred pound porker. Sleeping with hogs 
was no game for me, so I grabbed my blankets and straggled into another 
part of the barn. Here I had to put up with the cows, but nevertheless, I 
went to sleep. At Reveille I was out of luck ; for when I awoke at ' first call ' 
I found a mademoiselle milking the cows. I couldn't very well dress with 
her there and consecjuently got the Dickens for being late to Reveille. WTiich 
proves that one can't be a soldier and a perfect gentleman at the same 
time." 

Perhaps it is the writer of the above, who was severely reviled by his bunkies 
one night for making a dreadful racket and who replied with some heat " that 
he would get this damn pig out of the bed or know the reason why." 

The billets furnished other amusements, too. The Headquarters Com- 
pany tell how Jimmy Wild, who now doesn't like rats, was much amused to 
see one try walking a slack wire directly over his recumbent form; how the 
rat balled up his act and fell directly on Jimmie's face; how, with a yelp, 
James seized the rat by the tail, hurling it convulsively across the barn — at 
the blanketed form of the somnolescent Cor])oral Wliite; how he in turn 
flapped his blankets in the general direction of Fitzgibbon, who hastily made 
a pass at Mr. Rat with a bayonet — with the result, of course, that the rodent 
escaped. 

It was after a few days of billet life that the doughboy first confessed, 
bashfully, that he thought he had a cootie. Horrors! To think of OUR 
boys having — er, er, why, we could not bring ourselves to use the dictionary 
word for these new acquaintances. Acquaintances? Ay, bedfellows! 

Presently another, and still another victim. The thing lost its novelty 
as well as the stigma of being " visited." A certain preoccupation claimed the 
sjiare minutes. Along with a gesture characteristic of the monkey, bathing 
became more popular. Boiling the clothes was thought to be efl&cacious, 
though it was soon apparent that only a boihng of both the clothes and the 
soldier at the same time could bring about any marked degree of success. 
The Sanitary Detachment issued a sort of talisman to wear suspended from 
the neck — quite decorative and all right in its way, excepting that the little 
gra}' fellows seemed to grow fat on it. 



FLANDERS 



There may still be some who claim never to have "eiitcrtaiiuil \isilors." 
But others will tell you how their pets wore service stripes and wound chevrons, 
and would not only answer to name, but also fall in, count off, and do a perfect 
"squads right." 

". . . On my shirt they do 'right dress,' 
Number off and march to mess, — 
They run wild, sim])ly wild over me." 

One e\ening, a grouj) of lieutenants sat within the only light-proof barn 
left standing in Thenorgues, jmtiently "reading their shirts" by the light of 
the flickering candle. None of them could po.ssibly have had a bath for at 
least two weeks. Presently a very superior voice issued from out the dej^ths 
of a comfortable corner: "Say, if you fellows would only be clean, bathe once 
in a while, you wouldn't be bothered by these seam-squirrels." 

Wow! Such impudence! They dragged him from his bed, promising 
that if so much as one cootie were found on his bragging person he would l)e 
sentenced to expulsion from the billet — without clothes. Would you belie\e 
it— for some unaccountable reason, they couldn't find a single shirt-rabbit! 
But just to punish him for his insufferable superiority he was thrown out, 
anyhow. 

But to the drill which, under the guidance of British officers and non- 
coms dragged us out of bed at an early hour, rain or shine, and let us oil just 
in time for supper! Perhaps you were unhuk\' enough to be quartered in 
Audrehem, where the Second Battalion had their headcjuarters, or in Le 
Poirier, and led to the summit of that unsjicakable hill every morning, there 
to grub away in the earth, learning how to ply the festive pick and sho\el 
on a trench system; how to throw live grenades, how to shoot, how to pla>' 
games for which the British are very strong, and how to wield the ba>onet. 
An English sergeant-major was endeavoring to arouse the will to use the 
ba>-onet, in a small group of very earnest though very awkward American 
soldiers. One of them made a terrific lunge at his imagined adversary as if 
he were going to finish the war right then and there, lost his balance and fell 
over a thoroughly wounded dummy. "Fine spirit," cried the sergeant-major, 
"but go slaow, there; go slaow. ^'e'll win the Victoria Cross that wy, hal- 
right; but yer mother'll wear it." 

And the gas-mask! It had to be carried constantly, in the hope that the 
soldier would come to look ujwn it as his best friend, his inseparable companion. 
Our jueliminarj' training in gas defense had in Camp Upton advanced to such 
a ]:»oint under the able tutelage of Lieutenant Kenderdine that scarcely a man 
in the Regiment was unable to don the mask in less than the required six 
seconds. Of course, there were the peculiar cases such as that of Private 
Wigder whose false teeth, gripping the mouth-piece, would insist upon leaving 
their proper hiding place, sallying forth and biting him in the cheek — or 
something like that; we forget just what the excuse was which sent him into 
the kitchen at Regimental Headcjuarters.

A HISTORY OF THE 305 th INFANTRY 



A British general, in whose area and under whose jurisdiction we hap- 
pened to be training, said to the American officer who accompanied him on 
tour of inspection one morning: " And are your men well trained in the matter 
of gas-defense?" 

"Oh yes indeed," replied General Johnson. 

"Gas!" screamed the general at a passing doughboy, for the jxirpose of 
making a practical test. Nothing but blank amazement masked the Latin- 
American countenance on the roadside. 

"Gas!" howled the general, thinking that the boy hadn't heard him. 
No response; not a quiver of intelligence. 

"Don't you know enough to put on }-our mask when }-ou hear that 
warning?" cried the excited dignitary. 

"Mc no speak-a da Eenglis," answered the x\merican. 

After all the strain and stress which characterized the gas training, one 
can easily imagine the diabolic grin which greeted the news that Lieut. - 
Colonel Winnia, while \isiting the English front, had momentarily mislaid 
his mask and had got a lungful. 

It was perfectly topping, the English said, for the Americans to brigade 
their fresh units with the British, as was once the plan — the Americans fur- 
nishing new vigor and "pep," the British furnishing the experience. But the 
idea didn't ajipeal to the American youth at all; temj)erament, perhaps. It 
was with great consternation that one of the British ofificers breathlessly 
reported to Colonel Smedberg one day that a disciuieting rumor was abroad : 
the American soldiers had said they wouldn't light. Just another instance of

Ihe American doughboy's extravagant conversation being taken seriously. In 
all probability, some bragging British sergeant had undertaken to tell a crowd 
of willing listeners all the horrors of the trenches, real and imagined, spreading 
the butter too thickly; the American, envious of the older man's ex])erience, 
had maliciously given the impression that he was a near-Bolshevik. Nothing 
to it. 

While the Powers that Be, Those Higher Up, and "They" were sending 
each other congratulatory telegrams about the glorious reunion of the two 
sister nations, how the ^linute Man of '76 and the Red Coat had finally 
clasped hands, how blood would tell — Doughboy and Tommie were discovering 
that blood still had a lot to tell. For one thing, it stood to reason that the 
|)oor, downtrodden British Tommie was all to blame for the ration of cheese, 
tea, marmalade and dog-biscuit. Besides, it hurts the pride terribly to hear 
a better story i)ut o\-er than one's own about war and outrage and blood. 

A Tommie sits in a corner of the cafe beside a bottle of beer. "Come 
on ewer, Yank, and 'ave a bottle, he says. "You're on," replies the Yank, 
offering a (ioldflake,or a Red Huzzar,or a Three Castles, or something equally 
awful; whereupon, for want of something more cordial and brotherly to say, 
the Tommie remarks, "Well, we've been waiting more than three years for 
yer." "Yes," answers the doughboy, having thought up a good retort to this, 
since the first insult at Calais, "we had to come over and finish the job for 
\()u." They embrace with a crash of glass, and when reinforcements rush 
uj) from either side, the Allies break friendly bottles over each other's heads. 
With difficulty the blood brothers are separated, moving off to see what all 
the similar racket is about in the estaminet further down the street and 
fondly hoping for some real excitement. 

Many of us who hadn't accjuired even a cootie or two in the course of 
the hardening process — no doubt 'twas thought to stiffen our resistance to 
as many hardships as possible — either picked up a couple of "friends" while 
\isiting the British in the front lines of the Arras sector, or got them from 
those who returned. ¥ Company boasts that Sergeant Farmer came back 
with cooties clear to his shoe-strings, inoculating the entire P'irst Platoon and 
the officers, and planning to take home to Mabel eighteen trained coots in a 
l)ill box, which he "read" off McGee's shirt. 

Mothers' Day, May 4th, saw more letter writing than e\er before in the 
history of man; about that time, the first mail came through from the United 
States. Will }ou ever forget the thrill of those first letters — or the frightful 
lies you wrote in reply? Already, the Company officers, required to censor 
all outgoing mail, were busily carving out of existence the vivid accounts of 
fictitious raids, attacks, and heroic ad\-entures, and a scribe of Semitic origin 
was doing a big business in M Compan\- writing letters to the home folks for 
the boys — two stereotyped pages furnishing the necessary news, a third proving 
that Sonny was just as sentimental as e\er. 

Those who were fortunate enough to visit the British front line rcall_\- 
had something to write about, and were the center of interest upon their return 



46 A HISTORY OF THE 3 05th INFANTRY 

from the region of Gommescourt Wood and Fonquesvillers, ground which had 
recently been retaken from the Germans in their strategic retreat to the 
Hindenberg Hne. It was their first taste of shell fire, their first sight of an area 
pitted with shell holes, scarred by rotting tangles of wire, broken gun carriages, 
cannon, broken down tanks, bewildering mazes of disused and new trenches, 
battered chateaux, wrecked roads and villages, forests then nothing more than 
a flock of stark, withered skeletons. Some even experienced the thrill of night 
patrolling. The officers were particularly astonished at the nonchalance with 
which the English officers regarded the perils of the situation, at the impor- 
tance of their liquor, and at their formal dinners, surj^risingly well served 
under the ver>' noses of the Boches — a dangerous aggravation, one might think. 
But all came away more or less imbued with the feeling that the whole 
affair "up there" was too vast, too panoramic for rapid comprehension, 
and impressed by the tremendous amount of noise and metal required to kill 
a man. 

Of all the battles, skirmishes and engagements which this history will 
describe, there is no doubt that the Battle of Watten, of awful memory, has 
been most frequently alluded to. "Ah, the Rout of Watten," you will fondly 
say; "If .someone fails to make Watten as famous as Bull Run, future gen- 
erations will never fully appreciate the real horrors of war." When it was 
all over, though we had yet to hear the roar of artiller>' and the chatter of 
machine guns, there was not a man of the Regiment who did not agree abso- 
lutely with General Sherman's contention regarding war. 

For it was a war, a mimic war, the first of those terrible things called 
maneuvers; but very few of the officers and men realized until the battle was 
half over that the Americans were attacking the English, or the English 
attacking the Americans — something like that. WTiether or not the whole 
Division, or the Brigade, or merely the Regiment was concerned, nobody 
seems to know, to this day. Nobody knows anything about that famous 
affair ; yet everybody- talks about it. It will doubtless 
remain a mystery until the end of time. 

"This Battalion will march . . ." began the mere 
scrap of paper — a "chit" — which kept officers and men of 
your particular company awake the greater part of the 
night, packing up the full equipment, office records, trunks and 
bedrolls, (for the orderlies had not yet become skilled in the art of relieving 
the management of worry), and which sent you forth to perspire bright and 
early the morning of May sixteenth. " Kitchens wiU follow without distance." 
("Yeah, an' without food," you grumbled.) A four-hour march under as 
hot a sun as ever a midsummer had to offer brought the First Battalion to 
Zouafques, the Second to Touches and the Third to Tournehem. All 
afternoon the weary came straggling in, dropping exhausted into billets where 
they fondly hoped to rest for the next two weeks at least. But such was not 
to be. Many of the boys, too weary to clean out the stables allotted to them, 
preferred to flop in the adjoining pastures under their dog-tents.

Four o'clock next morning, the seventeenth, was the hour at whirh 
you contemplated murdering the bugler; at five-thirty you were on tlie road, 
that is, if you were in the Second Battalion. The orders read that at sonu'- 
thing like eight-forty-three, thirty seconds and two ticks, roughly sjjeaking, 
the Regiment would assemble at cross roads So-and-So, in such-and-such 
order. Disorder! Can't you see "them," studying the Field Service Regu- 
lations, figuring the length of each column, the distance to be covered, the 
numlier of miles accompHshcd by a thirty-inch stej), a hunch-ed and twenty- 
eight to the minute, the tift>--minute jaunt, the ten-minute halt then rising 
triumphantly to announce that the Regiment would assemble from the four 

corners of France at the very stroke of, of Oh, well, the battalions 

assembled. Then for the real work of the day! 

The remarks that were passed on the march would never pass the censor. 
"We cursed and sweat, for the sun was ferocious; and that made the cooties 
happy." It was the officers' simple duty, besides carrying their own equii)- 
ment, to see that the men kept up and made ten kilos look like two, a heart- 
breaking task. During the most trying part of the hike, an officer noticed 
that one of his men, an illiterate Russian Jew, was just about "all in" and 
that his poorly made uj) pack was gradually falling ai)art, thin almost dragging 
on the ground. "At the next halt," he said in no uncertain tones, "you tear 
that pack apart f|uickly and make it up riii/it! (iet your corjtoral to help 
you." At fifty minutes of the hour, when the men fell out on the right, the 



\^ 'li^f- 




4S A HISTORY OF THE 3 05 th INFANTRY 

lieutenant sauntered down the column to see that the readjustment was 
proceeding swiftly just as the poor, exhausted Russian took from his roll a 
heavy Webster's Dictionary! 

Even the English Tommies at the head of the column for the purpose of 
setting the proper experienced pace, and who carried no packs, were weU-nigh 
overcome by the heat. Many were the schemes to rid one's self of some, if 
not all of his load. The brightest idea emanated from the brain of one Mr. 
Gash, who cut off and threw away the canister of his gas mask, averring that 
inasmuch as he still retained the face-piece he was fully protected. 

During one of the halts, a doughboy collapsed on the stone railing of a 
bridge bewailing his fate, mopped his brow and whimpered, "I've never had 
a bit o' luck since I ate that fish on board the Cedric.'" 

All were game at the start; everj'body wanted to stick it out. But the 
men simply were not in condition to carrv- their absurdly large packs in that 
sudden spell of warm weather. During the early stages of the march there 
were exasperating halts for no apparent reason, the men, of course, being 
required to stand in formation expecting momentarily to push onward again. 
That is what takes it out of a man — needless starting and stopping — the 
"accordion formation." 

At the fifteen-kilo mark, the boys started to weaken. Forgotten were 
the principles of route-marching as demonstrated so beautifully by the English 
platoon (which had nothing else to do). The big, the small and tall started to 
keel over. Whole squads collapsed; companies evaporated, "all along the 
rotten road to Wa-a-atten." 

"Then our captain told us," writes a doughboy, " that we had a mile and 
a half to go. He fooled us. Our water was low; many were without it. The 
sun had us melted. Throats were parched; feet were blistered; our bones 
ached all over. I saw black in front of my eyes. Fifty minutes on the hike, 
ten minutes rest: the fifty dragged like years, but the ten went like seconds. 
Sometimes the major's watch would stop and we would walk eighty minutes. 
He never seemed to worry, for he was on his poor horse which was also all in. 
I saw this horse many times look pitifully at the men on the roadside and 
from the expression on the poor beast's face I judged that he too would like 
to sit down by the roadside. 

"We landed in a field about two-thirty and thought it was the end of the 
hike, for there was old 'Dutch' Richert with his chow-wagon; and the stew 
he made uj) for us tasted like creamed turkey. But that was only the first 
part of the battle. With the stragglers still coming in, the major gave orders 
to sling i)acks, saying we had about three miles more to go. By that time, 
three miles was no more than a cootie bite to us. But we had to go ten more 
dreary miles before landing in the woods. 'Those packs are too hea\->- for 
even a mule,' we overheard an officer say. This made us very cheerful — 
made us feel like wagging our ears. 

"That night, we would have relished a bed of nails and barbed wire. 
Having gulped down some hot water, aHas coffee, and ready to 'coushay' 



I^" L A N D E R S 49 

on the ground lloor of Wattcn Wood, I stcpjjed over into a nearby field for 
a minute and was tagged Ijy a s(|uad of Tommies as a prisoner. That was 
tlie first intimation I had that a war was on. Just then there were such 
shouts and yells through the woods that we thought the Boches had broken 
through the lines at Ypres. The yells were fierce: 'Put out that light; do 
you want to get killed!' 'Douse the kitchen fires!' 'Lights out, there!' 
'{'here he is, o\erluad.' Above the roar of the anti-aircraft Archies, we could 
hear the drowsy hum of the fierman aeroplanes. All t)ne could do was to crawl 
into a hole and try to drag the hole in after him, while the bombs drop])ed 
dizzily in the distance. Over to the east was seen the lurid glare of a burning 
ammunition dump. Searchlights flashed across the sky, and managed to pick 
up a Taube which dived and ducked and swerved while the Archies barked 
all around him. Finally he dodged out of the shaft of light, and despite the 
telltale buzz of his motor, it couldn't pick him uj) again. But what was the 
use? If he had landed a bomb, well — we couldn't stop his doing it, so we 
just naturally shivered ourselves to sleep." 

At about eleven o'clock, some frightened individual sounded a fake gas 
alarm and the boys rushed their gas masks on in record time. At Reveille 
next morning, a ])rivate of A Company, who fell asleep during the supposed 
attack with his mask on, awoke with a start and exclaimed with indignation 
to the sergeant standing near, "I wonder who in Hell put this on?" 

But w^hile G Company slept the sleep of the dead, "Abie" HofTman was 
up and doing. In response to the major's pointed inquiry, the company 
commander was able to reply, "Yes, sir. G Company's packs are all present 
or accounted for." Anybody who knows "Abie" can imagine how^ he took 
aside the driver of a British motor lorry, found him a drink somehow, sug- 
gested that they take a ride and returned triumphant with all the baggage 
which the company had shed along the route. 

Next day scarcely a man stirred out of his dog-tent until weird orders 
came in about reducing the weight of the packs. Away went the bed-sacks, 
O. D. shirts, extra socks and underwear, personal articles, the sweaters 
that Sweetie had laboriously knitted, the housewives that Mother had 
patiently put up so that one might be able to sew on a necessary button in 
the field. "I give you fair warning," said our lieutenants. "Your home- 
made sweaters, socks and other unauthorized articles are going to be con- 
fiscated if found in your packs. Open up." When inspection took place, 
many a man had on three pairs of prized socks, and a prickly sweater out of 
sight next his skin; but most of these articles were ruthlessly dumped into a 
pile through which the grasping Tommies rummaged to their heart's delight. 
When another dizzy order suddenly came through to give back the sweaters, 
our officers could scarcely look their men in the face. 

That was the second part of the fight. 

After " Duncan's Dizzy Division " had sjient most of the following morning 
in improvised and muddy trenches, the officers almost crazy because of con- 
stant and conflicting new orders, and most of the afternoon in a second series 



50 A HISTORY OF THE 30 5 th INFANTRY 

of aggravating inspections for unauthorized equipment, we lit out for home. At 
nine o'clock we flopped into a wood, but scarcely anybody pitched a tent, 
knowing that he'd have to be up and doing at four in the morning, in order 
to escape the heat of the day. At ten A. M., we were back at the starting 
place, and the superhuman lirst platoon of F Company, having won the 
hundred francs put up by "Dan" Patchin for a relay race, repaired in a 
body to the corner cafe in Touches to drown its thirst; the Battle of Wat- 
ten was over. 

That affair certainly gave the Division a black eye from which only some 
real action in the trenches could help us recover. A rigorous course of training 
ensued, much the same as that which preceded the "battle," the Regiment 
meanwhile being regrouped about the headquarters, at Licques. 

Inspection by Sir Douglas Haig seemed to please him, in preparation for 
which Captain Achelis might have been heard to say, "Tet's see. When he 
comes I can have one platoon doing a snaj^py bayonet drill, another throwing 
bombs, another in a gas-mask race, and the fourth doing 'scjuads right' in 
the courtyard of the brewery." The boys were promised a complete holiday 
on May thirtieth; and anyone will wager that General Pershing, whose 
threatened dash through the area never materialized, would not have approved 
of our being held the entire day, with combat equipment, in readiness for his 
approach and probable inspection! 

"About June tenth," writes the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, "there came a real 
tragedy. It cost the lives of fifteen men of Company B and wounded about 
forty others. The extensive list of dead and injured caused it to be thought 
across the ocean that the Three Hundred and Fifth was already in action. 
The accident happened while Company B was on a British drill field near a 
Stokes mortar battery." Unlike the rest of the report, and contrary to the 
general belief, it was not a B Company man who picked up a "dud". A 
French soldier of a salvage unit dropped the unexploded shell which oc- 
casioned the tragedy among the platoon about to fall in near by. It was a 
rather cheerless company which fired on an adjoining range the next day; 
and the entire Regiment had learned by sad experience not to tamper with 
unexploded shells. 

American rifles again! In the middle of the night, orders came to turn 
in the English Enfields and draw the old Winchesters deposited at Calais, and 
which looked as if they had been left out in the rain ever since. The Regiment 
would move at one o'clock, June sixth, for parts unknown. Rumor had it 
that the American Sector would receive us "toot-sweet." 

It was too bad that Captain Achelis, familiarly known to "his boys" as 
"Peaches," had announced with dramatic effect that to glorify the departure 
he had bought a pig. For, in view of the sudden order advancing the hour 
of march to eleven A. M., the Captain sold the pig, while his boys hastily 
rolled packs and snatched a chunk of bread and rare beefsteak from the rolling 
kitchens. For months thereafter, — on marches, in billets, in estaminets, on 
the mess line or wherever C Company congregated could be heard, sung to the 



FLANDERS 




tune, "The I""armer in the Dell," the mournful 
verses: "The Captain bought a pig," "The 
Captain sold the J)ig," "Who ate the pig," and 
so on. 

Oh, the mockery of it! Having washed 
down the beef and bread with a few gul])s of 
chlorinated water, we stood for an hour thinking 
of the untouched potatoes, coffee, jam, and the 
possibilities of pig, before the order came from 
Battalion Headquarters to "fall out in thi' im- 
mediate vicinity." It was not until three o'( lock 
that the order came to fall in again, whic li 
started us on our long journey to the southeast. 

Not even those unfortunates who had 
done forty-two kilos in a day, while hel])ing 
the l.S4th Brigade in a little maneuver c 
scoff at the thirty kilometers with full packs, co 
morning. As usual, the men got away in splendid spirits on what pro\ed to 
be one of the most gruelling hikes of their entire experience, everybody "cov- 
ering off" properly, well to the right of the road, marching songs rising lustily 
from every throat. The burning sun gave way to twilight, twilight to moon- 
light, and still the fifty-minute marching period, still the ten-minute rest! 
"Gawd, how much further have we got to go?" While the men wobbled all 
over the road, majors, adjutants and scout officers sped up and down the 
ditch on horseback, testing out the liaison. "Liaison" was an enthralling 
word. "Er, er. Lieutenant, report to Major Metcalf that the head of this 
Battalion cleared cross roads Blankety-blank dash blink-point-blank at nine- 
fifty-two." The adjutant transmits this thrilling information to the Major, 
who returns the com])liment, thereby leaving the ultimate defeat of Germany 
a mere ciuestion of time — while the plodding doughboy wonders how much 
more time it will necessitate and envies the adjutant his horse. " ( >ne feature 
of the French kilometer," he observes, "is that you not onl\- kill a meter, but 
also kill yourself, particularly when >-ou've got this pack on your back." 

W^at did it matter if the mules and wagons of the Sujaply Comj)any 
barely escaped running over the prostrate bodies lying confusedl>' in the woods 
at Campagne-les-Boulonnais? Utterly fatigued, there was no thought but to 
lie and rest, and no welcoming cheer to greet the concerted action of the buglers 
ne.Kt morning. But just stop a moment to think of the poor old cooks. No 
easy life was theirs while on the move. To be sure, it was the easiest thing 
in the world for them to slip their j^acks on the kitchens and ration carts 
despite all orders to the contrary; but they covered the same ground you did, 
and got up in time to feed you — as they did that painful morning. 

It was soon apparent that this second day was not to be any grand and 
glorious achievement ; tormenting feet, aching bodies, insufficient rest and groan- 
ing backs soon began to take their toll. Man after man, struggling as long as 



52 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

human endurance could maintain them, fell by the wayside, sick, exhausted 
and oftentimes unconscious. 'Long about midday, General Wittenmyer came 
upon a pathetic figure bv the roadside, propped against his pack which he 
hadn't the energ}' to takeoff. "Dogs," he soliloc}uized, gazing ruefully at his 
feet, "you've gone back on me. For many a year you've been my main support 
and you've done your duty noble. I've been careful of you right along; but 
I guess I was too easy with you. And now, because you've had to take some 
hard knocks, you're laying down on me, ain't you. But I guess you done 
the best you could an' I can't blame you for putting me out of the running.' 

Any feeble attempt at mirth and hilarity had long since failed. Con- 
versation was at a standstill; but what the boys thought about the army at 
that time was unfit for publication. Yet the hike was productive of many 
surprises, among them General Wittenmyer's decision, after hearing the dough- 
boy's lament, to order a lengthy rest at noon and — Sidney Wennick's quality 
of endurance. 

"Sid had been cooking for the Signal Platoon all the time we were out 
with the British climbing the hills of Northern France. We had carried the 
pack a bit, nearly every day in the week. Sid hadn't. So, when we started 
on this jaunt the hardened veterans thought that Sid would be one of the 
first to drop out. Along about the fifth hour, when fully ready to call it quits, 
there was Wennick marching blithely along, seemingly with no cares or wor- 
ries. He was in at the finish, and probably the freshest man of the lot. That 
night, his bunkie happened to be looking while Sid unrolled his pack. It 
comprised one blanket and a lot of straw; all the rest of his equipment was 
on the ration cart." 

At Embrey, eighteen kilometers away, the entire Regiment encamped in 
the rain upon a slippery hUlside. There ensued the customary foot inspection 
by delighted officers who would look solicitously at masses of blisters and 
callouses, giving the highly original and expert advice to prick the former and 
shave the latter. A few minutes thereafter, the nearby stream was full of 
soap suds and struggling humanity, the woods bright with naked bodies and 
brandished towels, and the price of wine advancing from two to six francs a 
bottle. "The 'I>ogs' of that town," the boys complained, "paid off their 
war debts with the money they took over from the Three Hundred and Fifth." 

One more day of it brought us into Wamin, on a Saturday night. But a 
Saturday night in Wamin is not exciting. We rested the Sabbath day and 
kept it wholly unto ourselves, lying about in glorious relaxation on the pleasant 
grass, attending Chaplain Browne's services, listening to the band and watch- 
ing F Company's ball team trim a group of Canadians to the tune of 9-5. 

Again we quote; "As we approached Hesdin, the morning of June tenth, 
it was our expectation to find accommodation in compartment cars, such as 
we had seen the French and British soldiers fly past in. But for us, there 
were only trains of dinky box cars which had been carting horses around 
France for three years and never cleaned. WTiile some men plied the busy 
pitchfork, our future Argonne scouts got some valuable pointers stealing straw.

ch.\pt1':r IV 
LORRAINE 

WHEN the tired troops were dumped willi all their baggage out of the 
cattle cars at Charmes and Portieux on June 1 ,ith they were not thrilled. 
No crowd, no hurry and bustle, no transport, no cannon. No war. 
The country was beautiful ; but one is scarcely in a frame of mind to appreciate 
the landscape when for two days and nights he has been jammed in so tight 
with his fellow men and all their worldly goods that he has had to stand 
erect half the night to make room for his sleeping brother. Someone had 
sense enough to send the train bearing the First Battalion through to a point 
somewhat nearer the rendezvous; but these men had only the prospect of 
another infernal hike. They were unhappy, ninety-live per cent, having lost 
their bet that we were headed for Italy. They were hungry and just begin- 
ning to realize that all the money they had so generously given to the Red 
Cross a few stations back had virtually paid for the food handed out to the 
306th Infantry on the ])receding train. 

Hike they did toward Baccarat as a result of the vague, tissue paper 
orders which the train commanders somehow accjuired. Had the billeting 
oflficers who were sent down beforehand, to pedal all over the countryside 
upon decrepit bicycles, rer|uisitioning the most palatial cow-stables in Lorraine, 
been given some really sane instructions, there might have been a place desig- 
nated for each and every company. Regimental Headcjuarters at Moyemont 
were soon advised by Division that the towns selected by the billeting officers 
— according to instructions — were not even in the correct regimental sector. 
In consequence, after rolling around in the grass for a good str-r-retch while 
the battalion transports with a bit of food were unloaded, the troops set off 
into the night, with inadequate maps to be studied at cross-roads by the light 
of a match, finally making bivouac in the fields and grumbling, "To Hell with 
it all." 

By three o'clock on the following afternoon, it was the joyous privilege 
of the Second Battalion, after marching an untold number of kilometers out 
of their way — again, according to instructions — to land in the beautiful city 
of Hallianville, which had not yet deemed it necessary to legislate against 
the construction of sky-scrapers and whose tv\o streets — one leading in, the 
other out — were flanked on either side by venerable manure piles, those stately 
monuments so characteristic of aesthetic rural France. 

The men are hungry, but there is no food in the kitchens wherewith to 
feed 'em. Having tucked away fifteen in this barn, thirty in that, ten some- 
where else, the headquarters platoon near the proposed orderly room, the 
officers repair to the billets indicated upon the chart in the INIairie. H Com- 
pany's officers advance upon a humble doonvay which has long since retired 
in modest self-effacement behind the most gigantic manure heap in town. 




56 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

Ha! The size of the pile is doubtless an index to wealth and standing in the 
community. The biggest pile, the biggest citizen. Correct. He is the genial 
Mayor, who is honored to place at Captain Dodge's disposal 
his best bedroom, the windows of which give immediately 
upon that prized monument resting so near the door-step. 
He is proud to sell one of his poor pigs for a mere fifteen 
hundred francs to the brave Americans hastening to the 
rescue of France; he opens up a bottle of one dollar cham- 
pagne in their honor and declaims grandly, "The Ameri- 
cans and the French are brothers; ten francs please." 
Since the ban was only on alcohol, many a case of French 2.75 went 
forthwith out under the trees; a Polish wedding had nothing on some of those 
parties. Chlorinated water was enough to drive a man to drink, anyhow; 
but after sampling the beer and light wines ladled out to the soldiers, one 
could readily understand why drunkards are so uncommon in France. There 
was no more temptation to become a wine drunkard there than to become a 
castor oil drunkard in America. Still, it relieved the tension — a little nippy 
now and then. "Our money was all exhausted," wrote one of the adA'ocates 
of moderation, "but there were a few of the boys who still had some. Jack 
was in one of the cafes playing cards and won bokoo francs; as fast as he could 
win them, I would spend them. 'By' was also in the corner; when Eetreat 
sounded, he and I were drinking champagne like water, out of beer glasses. 
I said to him, 'Wliat do you say. Jack?' He said, 'To Hell with it. WTien 
they're ready to go up into the line we'll be on deck.' Then we started on 
the champagne again, and I drank so much that I thought I saw the Boches, 
and began blazing my rifle, when who came around the corner under the 
barrage but the honorable captain, who walked into the cafe and wanted to 
know who done the shooting. Finally he looked at me and just guessed right. 
WTiile we were walking up Main Street, I dared him to transfer me into a 
fighting outfit. The lieutenant took me toward the guard house, when he 
heard sounds inside one of the billets. He opened the door, poked his head 
inside and sounded off, 'Stop this noise!' Someone hollered, 'Who in Hell 
are you?' He said, very dignified, 'Ofticer of the day,' and the doughboy 
said, 'Then what the Hell are you doing out this hour of 
the night?' I guess he had had some champagne, too. 
When the loot got me in the mill, he wanted to know 
why I done the shooting. I said, 'To celebrate the Fourth 
of July, for I never had a chance to, on the Fourth.' Next 
day the old captain called me down something terrible, 
but still he released me without trial, and I never heard 
any more about it." 

Leaving our earlier habitations, Rehaincourt, Orton- 
court, St. Genest, Hallianville and Moyemont, the billeting officers of the 
battalions and the billeting N. C. O.'s of each company had their fill of 
marching on ahead of their companions to Hst and apportion the available 




L R R A I X E 



cowsheds and other roofs. The Supply Company, which soon took uj) its 
abode in Azerailles, into which the railroad trains cre])t now and then and 
from which they could readily distribute supplies, was decidedly envied by 
the rest of the Regiment, even though Azerailles was a good target for aerial 
bombs. And not merely a good target, but the subject of a number of har- 
rowing attacks. The Supply Company suffered there more casualties than 
all the rest of the Regiment, in Lorraine. Through Domptail, P\)nteno>- la 
Joute, Glonville, Gelacourt and other villages, our billeting experiences ran. 

Our experiences hiked, rather; for the Infantry generally travels afoot. 
This entire period stands out in our minds as one of countless night marches, 
moving e\-er nearer and nearer the front, drilling the while, hoping and praying 
for the time to come when we could at last feel "safe" in the trenches. "Well, 
how is the Major feeling?" one doughboy would ask another. "Looks wor- 
ried," might be the reply. "Then let's start getting our jiacks ready, foi 
there's a hike on, tonight." 

All this territory had once been in the hands of the Cernians; they had 
advanced rapidly during the first days of the war. Stark and staring now, 
gaunt ruins reared their tottering heads into the moonlight, the churches 
shattered, the stars peeping through great gaping holes in their crumbling 
towers, the houses gutted and unfit for habitation. Pathetically, a few okl 
men, women and ragged children would gather in the moonlit squares to call, 
"Bonne chance, mcs enfants. Vive rAmerique!"as the troops filed through. 
On and on through the countryside, past an endless stream of motor trucks 
and transports into the next diminutive stone village, each one a bit itoorer 




A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 




than the last and exactly as the retreating Germans had left it in 1914. One 
came to dread these marches, the consuming fatigues, the sore feet, the sud- 
denly discovered illnesses probably induced by too much vin rouge, the com- 
mandings, the drivings, urgings which are an inseparable part of every long 
journey afoot and which eat the heart out of a man. On the other hand, 
there was the encouraging tramj), tramp, tramp of the faithful, the ten-minute 
rest on the right of the road, and then the fifty-minute back-breaker. "I've 
tramped over every road in France but one," wailed an eloquent letter writer, 
"and I exi:)ect to cover that one tomorrow. A week or so ago, after we had 
been walking nearly all one night. Jack and 'Sauerkraut' shouted 'Rest!' from 
their place in ranks, and were given 'arrest' by the old captain; but they 
both preferred court martial to company punishment. Poor 'Sauerkraut' 
was transferred to the Q. M. and in Azerailles was fatally wounded in an air 
raid. He should have taken company punishment in the first place." 

Each new town visited meant a cleaning of both town and man; no 
sooner would the streets be swept, the civilian garbage buried and the men 
scrubbing their clothes at the public "lavoir" than off we'd go to another 
cleaning. The French never could comprehend the apparent eagerness with 
which the American shaved, plied the tooth-brush or rushed to the nearest 
swimmin' hole. But the French did wash their clothes now and then; and 
tremendously amusing was the sight of an old woman at the public fountain, 
lambasting the wash with a weighty paddle. Some of the boys reckoned 
that cooties could not survive such man-handling, and tried it out, ineffectually. 



L O R R A I X E 



In other ways, the civilian customs provided entertainment. The Head- 
quarters Company at Moyemont were daily aroused by the shrill blasts of 
the community stock-herder's trumpet. At the first peep of dawn, when all 
good doughboys were pounding the blanket hard, he would sound off, shamb- 
ling down street in motley garb — perhai)s the regalia of his high office — 
a'dragging his wooden shoes with difficulty o\er the cobbles. The first blast 
usually produced the desired result. Out of barns and yards tumbled sundry 
sheep, goats, cows and pigs, to fall in behind him. Returning from the fields 
at dusk, the animals would instincti\'ely fall out and retire to their respective 
habitations. Two members of the Regimental Band yearned for trouble. 
The machinations of their fertile brains sent the loudest and strongest First 
Cornet down street one morning long ere Reveille, blowing a Call to Arms. 
The Pied Piper of Hamlin boasted no such array. With stately tread, he 
conducted his unique platoon around the town. Whither he went, they fol- 
lowed. He stopped playing, but still they hung on. The thing was revealing 
complications. Showing signs of deep concern, the cornetist attempted the 
soothing strains of "Go to Sleep, My Baby," without result. Far be it from 
such loyal adherents to desert their leader in the midst of drill. But hark! 
What is that old familiar sound? The shrill call of the herder's old fish-horn 
resounding through the village! With tails erect, or flying, or kinked or not 
showing at all, as the case might be, the animals dashed off in all directions. 
Pandemonium reigned, during which the First Cornet made good his escape. 

At last, from the heights above Fonlcno)-, a somnok^nt village of several 
hundred souls and a few bodies, one could look off into ('.erman\-. There, in

the distant haze, were the Vosges Mountains. Down in tlie hollow, where 
the little \miis of smoke appeared, were the front Hnes, where the 42d Division 
were getting what we were pleased in those days to caU a "strafing." Over- 
head, the aeroplanes wheeled and ducked, the "Archies" planting their 
shrapnel bursts carefully around them, while a bugler stationed under a tree 
on the hill-top blew the warning Attention, his call being relayed to points 
wherever troops might be drilling. How we rejoiced whenever the call came 
which sent us flat into the grass, there to loaf and sleep until the birds dis- 
appeared and Recall sounded. Anything, to escape drill! And how we 
detested getting back again to that "Line of Half Platoons, Automatics on 
the Right Flank," as so beautifully and so uselessly charted in the red pam- 
phlet, Offensive Combat of Small Units! 

Wliether to train some more, or to go on hiking for the 

rest of our lives, was the question. Perhaps to relieve them 

of this soul-consuming anxiety, eight officers and about 

twenty-five men, mostly from the Third Battalion, were 

about this time sent down into southern France for two 

months of horse-buying. Think of the frightful worries they 

had down there — sleeping in a bed every night, knowing 

where their next meal was coming from, real towns to play 

in! It must have been terrible! 

Units of the Rainbow Division were now streaming to the rear, nights, 

through our town. It was evident that a relief would soon be accomplished.

noitre brought hack harrowing tales. The men were actually billeted, not 
living night and day in the trenches. The officers could with difficulty be 
pried out of their hammocks under the trees. The Germans would stroU into

with them; but as a war, it was a good picnic.

the little "g(i to Hell ca])s" tucked into the jiacks. Into a luxurious reserve 
position in (llonville went the Third Battalion, the Second into support at 
Pettonville and \'axainville. the First into the front line at Migneville and 
Herberviller, Regimental Headquarters at Hablainville. French guides had 
met the relieving units some distance in rear of the positions, cautioning silence 
and an absence of lights. Would the Germans shell during the relief? The 
strain was terrible. "Our first night in the Lorraine Sector, I was posted 
with a small detail on the edge of a wood; the open field beyond was No 
Man's Land. I was very cautious and worried all night lest the enemy 
advance and annihilate our gallant little band. But with the dawn's early 
light I beheld in the middle of our No Man's Land a I^-ench peasant cutting 
hay with a horse-drawn mower." 

Today, our war on the Baccarat Front (so called because the I)i\ision 
Headcjuarters were at Baccarat) seems like a i)eriod of unallowed hai)piness. 
Seemingly, by mutual consent, the forces on both sides indulged in the merest 
sort of aggressive tactics, sending thither for rest and 
recuperation such units as had exhausted their strength 
on other fronts. Though regiments of the Division 
suffered appreciably from spasmodic aggressive tactics 
by the Germans, to which they retaliated in kind, the 
Three Hundred and Fifth never had any nasty 
tricks played upon it. The French who so ably chai)eroned our 
first few weeks on this front, before withdrawing from their intimate 
association with us, were terror-stricken lest our artillery should fire on towns

troops opposed to us? Will >-cars obliterate the terrors of a gas attack whit Ii 
never occurred? 

It was here that we had been warned to have our weather eyes open for 
the Hindenburg Circus, which had shortly before been sprung by the 
Germans with considerable success. The old "gas wave" was thought to 
be well nigh obsolete, dependent as it was upon favorable winds, terrain and 
barometric conditions. Gas was now projected chiefly by shells or cylinders 
filled with volatile poisons which burst on landing with a slight detonation 
somewhat like a pistol shot, just enough to crack the cylinder or spray the 
liquid within a short radius. The Hindenburg Circus was thought to be 
an indefinite number of simple dischargers, like sections of gas pipe easily 
and quickly set up in a trench, all discharged simultaneously by means of an 
electric current, appearing in effect as a brilliant and sudden roar of flame 
and a smothering blanket of gas before masks could be adjusted. 

The result was that gas alarms, false alarms, were frec[uent. Down the 
line from right to left, and sweeping on into the back areas, would sound the 
beating of empty shell casings, the clanging of bells, the ominous whir of 
rattles and klaxons, and the frantically hurried adjusting of masks. Doubt- 
less the klaxon to many wiU yet mean, not the warning of an automobile's 
a])proach, but Gas! Cor])oral Humphreys of A Company likes to tell of 
the balmy days down in the G. C. "(liau\iret" where little Marcus Heim 
would hang his mask on an old apjile tree before going in swimming with the 
boys. "Morg and Carl resoh'cd to show him the terrible conseciuences of 
being without his mask, leltini; out a yell 'GAS!' tliat started Marcus on 




A HISTORY OF THE 30 5 th INFANTRY 




a mad rush for his mask. We all had ours on, and it was some time 
before we 'discovered' his, threw him on liis back and forced it on his face. 
Poor Marcus lay on his back gasping for breath while we made believe look 
up a doctor to come and pronounce him a victim. We found that our yells 
had been relayed back for miles. A ration carrying detail came up just about 
that time. 'What's the matter with you,' we said. 'Don't you hear the 
alarm of (ias?' 'Oh, that's all right,' they replied, 'we don't belong to this 
platoon.'" 

Company A, with its P. C. in the crumbling Chateau de la Noy, a 
relic of olden days, staged a war of its own. Why the Boches didn't loft a 
package of high explosive into its crumbling towers, no one could guess; it 
was in full observation, and full of troops. Feeling sure that the "entente 
cordiale" would be respected, the French and American officers took life there 
casually enough, dining in style, altogether too far above ground for safety. 
It was after several of our own unwieldy and noisy patrols had skulked about 
No Man's Land for several nights — "kill or capture" patrols, as they were 
desperately termed — neither killing nor being killed, that noises were heard 
in the moat one black night. A German patrol, without a doubt, coming to 
blow up the chateau! From the battlements, a squad of bombers listened. 
Again, a sound of footsteps "squnching" in the mud. Rockets were fired 
into the darkness, from a Ver\' pistol, without revealing a Boche. More 
stealthy foot noises, until at last a brave and bold bunch of bombers floundered 
down into the slime, only to scare out a flock of old herons. 

Sergeant Fortenbacker of Company A tells of another harrowing battle 
staged by his company. 



LORRAINE 



"Second Lieut. Morgan Harris was on the 16th day of July in the historic 
year of 1918 in full command of the old fighting fourth platoon in which I'm 
proud to say I was a corporal. We were at the same time stationed in the 
support position in front of the town of Vaxainville, in the Baccarat Sector. 

"Lieut. Harris had just received his commission with four other sergeants 
of the company. His first trouble as a commissioned officer was that we 
enUsted men would forget the salute which means so much to the newly made 
officer. He therefore placed his favorite runner, Private McPartland, in a 
place where all could see him and then passed up and down the line a few 
times so we would get the idea as McPartland did. 

"This just reminds me of the great feeling that existed between Lieut. 
Harris and his runner. Platoon headciuarters was occupied by Lieut. Harris 
and Sgt. Lathrop. On the above-mentioned morning, runner McPartland 
saw Sgt. Lathrop "reading" his only undershirt in an attempt to rid himself of 
the cooties which were always doing squads east and left on his chest and back. 
The runner, fearing his lieutenant would also catch these terrible shirt rats, 
informed him of his great peril. For this brave act Lieut. Harris made Sgt. 
Lathrop move to another dugout and allowed runner McPartland the great 
honor of sleeping in his dugout. 

"On the afternoon of this e\entful day the newly appointed lieutenants 
attended a farewell dinner given in their honor by our old company ofilcers. 
It seems, in the case of Lieut. Harris, that the French wine brought out his 
great fighting qualities; he was sure the Germans were about to make 
an attack on us. He was so sure of the Dutchmen breaking through

the front lines we held, that he got right on the job to make our position 
impregnable. 

"His first move was to send for a detail of nearly the entire platoon to 
get rifle and hand grenades. After getting all the bombs available he in- 
structed the men, saying to his detail, 'For your own safety I wish you ammu- 
nition carriers would keep two hundred \-ards in front of me while going 
through the woods ' 




LORRAINE 



"His second move was to call a meeting of the non-coms to get togctluT 
and j)lan a defense so that our Fighting Fourth would go down in histor_\' 
for holding the entire German army at bay. The non-coms assembled and 
the lieutenant called the meeting to order, and started as follows: 'Now 
men, give me your attention. You may smoke if you wish — who's got a 
cigarette?' As nobody was lucky enough to have a 'cig' our ])latoon leader 
had to be satisfied with the makings. 'Now then, men, tonight of all nights 
I want you all to stick to me. We have had our ins and outs, but let b>'goncs 
be bygones, because by morning some of us may be gone forever. We will 
stand-to all night. If something happens to me Sgt. Lathrop is second in 
command. I also want you all to put your heart and soul in this coming 
battle.' Just then Sgt. Lathrop walked up with tears running down his 
cheeks and shook Lieut. Harris' hand, saying, 'Morg, I want to be the first 
to say good-by to you.' Just at this point there was a snicker from the 
corporals, for they knew the only time they were good friends was only when 
one or the other got away with a can of the i)latoon's jam. Now the meeting 
broke up and ^\e got set for the big battle which would mean Kaiser Bill's 
Waterloo. 

"Well, to make a long story short, when Lieut. ]\Iooers insj^ected our 
position he found all the men unnccessaril)- standing-to, ready for action, 
the platoon leader himself studying a maj) and preparing for the grc'.tcst 
battle ever caused b\' a bottle of \'m blanc." 

Having spent their brief period in the front line, it was the First Bat- 
talion's turn to retire for rest, while others look uii the arduous duties of

maintaining control of No Man's Land. "It was our fifth day; the sun was 
shining brightly and the boys were gracefully draped over the green grass. 
In front of them was about forty feet of strong barbed wire to prevent a \asit 
from any square-headed sausage inhaler who might stray 
over on his way back from a fishing trip or outdoor pin- 
ochle game. All was quiet and peaceful when a messenger 
came up and gave us the information that we were to go 
back in support that night. Accordingly we rolled up our 
homes and reluctantly filed through the winding trenches 
to the support position in the wood. And there our troubles 
began. From the precautions our platoon lieutenant took in those support 
trenches, and from the worried look he always wore, one would think that 
the fate of the army, the safety of democracy and the political freedom of 
the ne.\t generation depended upon our staying up all night. 

"Directly night would begin to think about falling, the Chauchat teams 
would be marched out to their positions and given their countersigns and 
passwords. The latter usually sounded hke a cross between a Patagonian 
swear word and the name of a new patent medicine. One of our fellows 
actually remembered his password until morning, but he long since was 
evacuated for brain trouble. We were then left guarding the barbed wire in 
front of us until morning, with the injunction to stay awake under pain of 
court martial, death, starvation, corned-willie and other horrors. At various 
times of the night, the heutenant would come out with two or three sleepy 
non-coms to inspect us and wake up the guards. ' Ciee, this is the worst war

One of our most reliable ])rivates, coming from Battalion Ht'adfiuarters 
one night was halted by a sentrv. " Halt ! Who goes there? " cried the guard. 




l-urwurd ul rcttoinilk 



A HISTORY OF THE 305 th INFANTRY 




The answer, "Friend." But the private had forgotten the password — 
"Digne-Druot," or something like that — and was turned back. It was a 
rather long and lonesome journey back to Battalion Headquarters. Suddenly 
footsteps were heard approaching. Playing the part of a sentry, he halted 
the stranger, demanding the password, which he received without any trouble. 
Having saved himself a trip to headquarters, he then stepped over to the real 
sentry, gave him the password, and went merrily on his wa>-. 

Back in the sujiport lines of Pettonville and Vaxain\-illc the life was 
equally terrifying. Dog tents appeared along the grassy slopes of the 
Wittenmyer Line, where nights were spent digging perfectly useless trenches 
in the solid rock on a reverse slope, serving merely to call the Jerry-planes' 
attention to the fact that the Americans were there in force, daring them to 
send over a bit of artillerv' fire. Here, as further back in reserve, it was 
drill, drill, drill, when not carr\'ing rations up over the tiny railway in the 
Bois de Railleux, and coasting home at a speed which compared fa\()rabl>' 
with the best that the switchbacks at Coney Island could offer. 

There were some criticisms at the time because the 77th Division had 
been sent to a French sector after receiving its instruction with the British. 
It was unfortunate, perhaps, that the men had learned the British way of 
"carrying on" and had learned to use the British weapons, such as the Lewis 
machine gun, or light automatic rifle. This was replaced by the clumsy, 
clanking Chauchat which was Hghter and fired a delicate and troublesome 
clip of twenty rounds instead of forty. Again, the British used one type of 
grenade, the Alills, while the French used two "citron" tj-pes, one which broke

up into rough and rugged splinters for use on the defense, and another wliich 
destroyed merely by concussion, for use on the offense. Both t},i)es were 
primed either by lever release, or by a plunger to be struck against the heel 
or helmet before being thrown. There is no doubt that these new weajions 
caused some embarrassment at first, particularly in the other regiments of the 
Division, which sustained vigorous raids by the enemy. And so, the da>s 
were consumed with practice in the use of these weapons. 

However poor the rations may have seemed at times, they didn't sto]i 
our daily music ration. The boys in the trenches needed aesthetic enjoyment 
and Cor[)oral Kosak of the Signal Platoon set out to provide it. Daily at 
three the band played at Regimental Headquarters in Hablainville. To relay 
this music forward to the trenches was a problem easily solved. At that 
particular hour the Corporal would call each Battalion Signal Detachment, 
and had them listen on the telephone while the band played. As the musicians 
were stationed directly beneath the room in which the switchboard was located, 
the melodies were audibly transmitted over the wire. P^or a long time these 
sessions continued, and the lieutenant in charge wondered as to the why and 
wherefore of all the connections on the switchboard. 

Here, too, the hard work of the Intelligence Section could be seen in 
persi)ective. There seemed, in a way, to be no positive division between 
French and German holdings. There were many German sympathizers on 
the French side, just as there were French sympathizers on the German side 
of the hues. It wasn't exactly a case of having an enemy in the rear, but the 
situation approximated that to a degree. Now, it is the duty of the IiUelH-

wag his head sadly and say, "No centimes; be a good fellow." "Oh, that's 
all right," the boys would have to say, "buy a drink with it, all for yourself." 
We expect to hear that Vaxainville Pete has bought a farm with his winnings, 
and settled down. 

Terrible as the war was up at the front, it was equally terrible in reser\e

billets, his men's equipment. Well into the evening he had his numerous 
reports to attend to. 

^And the dubbin! Shoes must be dubbined at all times, though a man 
have but one pair, the roads dusty, the fields muddy. "The same morning 
that the first dubbin arrived, the lieutenant in charge of our company received 
an order to send a few N. C. O.'s over to the 37th Division to teach them 
practical machine-gun work — a few of us Lorraine veterans. Mem! He 
rallied his braves around him and picked seven for the job. We had to get 
our packs made and slung, eat, shave and get slathers of the awkward Chauchat 
stuff together in about twenty minutes, as usual. As each change in orders 
would occur to the lieutenant's mind, runners would be dispatched to the 
various billets to inform us. These runners, true to their caUing, would stick 
their heads inside the doors, yell the news and run. 'Take helmets.' Then, 
'Overcoats on the packs.' 'Wear your overcoats.' And so on. Finally, one 
bright chap came looking for me — ' Corporal Lazarus, oh. Corporal Lazarus, 
Wilson says to take dubbin along; I don't know what platoon he's in, but ya 
gotta take him.'" 

It was a terrible war, but not so awful for those who got away, via motor 
truck, to study bomb-throwing or attend the school of the clankmg Chauchat 
at Fraimbois. They did not complain at aU about the late, luxurious Reveille, 
the easy classes, swimming in the river Meurthe or tripping to the big city 
of Luneville — or the grand parade of combined American detachments on 
July fourth, and the international field meet in which we gave the French 
such a drubbing.

aggravation, when news of the first American offensive came through -news 
that the French and Americans had advanced beyond Chateau Thierry, taking 
thousands of prisoners and liberating twenty towns. Great was the enthusi- 
asm and excitement. The men jumped with unwonted ^•igor into their 
bayonet drill, picturing the heroic deeds which they might at that moment 
have been doing. If others could fight, they could. 

Then along came the 37th Division looking for something to do, and 
merged for a week or so their inexperienced units with ours. Veterans we 
considered ourselves, superciliously regarding their initial efforts in a much 
less charitable spirit than that of the French who had led us through the 
mazes of the first dance. At least, we did not discharge Colt 45's out of 
the second-story windows of Pettonville during an imaginar\' gas attack, or 
try to shoot up one of our own tired units, as they did our C Company when 
it passed rearward through the support lines! 

It was pitch dark the night of August third when we started on a long, 
weary hike to the rear, the rain and lightning terrific — much less welcome 
than any shelling we had e.xperienced in that sector. Played out from their 
long stay in the dirty trenches, out of which they had carried most of the 
cooties, the men slopped and slipped in the muddy road, unable to see the 
pack in front, but keeping distance by holding on to it. Yet, such was the 
relief gleaned from the prospect of some different adventure, that men sang 
all the way — all the way back to Domptail, where the Second Battalion was 
herded into an old airdrome, the first good roof they had crawled under in 
some time. 

But there, the next day being Sunday, and though kilos and kilos behind 
the lines, they couldn't even go outside the building without rifie, belt, bayonet 
and gas-mask. And one of those irksome inspections ordered! Again that 
night they hit the long, long trail leading into the vicinity of Blainville, a 
railhead. Through Gerberviller the units passed by moonlight, the worst 
used-up town encountered thus far. It was said that during the Germans' 
1914 advance an entire brigade had been stopped there by a mere handful of 
the French Blue Devils, who had been ordered to stay the advance for at 
least two hours. They held it up for half a day. To vent his rage, the German 
general had sacked and burned the town, torturing the civilians. Every time 
he raised his glass ten men, women and children were shot down. In the 
moonlight, the little town looked ghostly, scarcely one brick left standing 
upon another. We itched to try our guns upon Berlin itself. 

Before the entrainment on August 7th, there was time in which to practice 
"infiltration" as the Boche had worked it against the English. It was a 
beautiful word, uttered as fondly by the local Powers That Be as that "defense 
in depth," and "haison." But of real instruction, real information as to how 
it worked out in detail, there was none. It was left to the imagination of the 
officers. "You are now to get back to the idea of an individual warfare, man 
against man, everyone for himself. It is just like the games you used to ])lay

that 3'ou have given one morning to the teaching of 'infiltration,' we can let 
that drop." It was dropped, until September 26th, when something akin to 
it was tried out in desperate earnest. 

gi- Though vaguely sensed here and there in the ranks that life was not to 
be simply one journey after another, there were blithe spirits — of differing 
sorts — aboard the trains. This despite orders that nothing drinkable but 
water and coffee could be allowed. One of his men tells how Lieut. Robinson 
of E Company cemented the ties which bound him in affection to his

jMatoon: "When about a hundred kilos from Blainville, old 'Champy' Rol)- 
inson, the champagne hound, jumped out of the officers' coach and houi^dit 
six bottles of Monte BeUe. The train started while he was making the 
l)urchase. Robbie paddled desperately after the moving train, handing hol- 
lies through the car doors as they flashed by, ere he could make a landing. 
Some of the boys thought he was remarkably generous to hand oul such a 
beautiful drink to plain soldiers and lingered just long enough to toast liim; 
others never even hesitated, but sent it home with a greeting and a gurgle. 
At the next stop, Robbie started down the line to collect his hquor, but was out 
of luck. 'Must have been the next car, Lieutenant,' was his rccc])tion. 
'Come on, boys, come across,' he would hopefully call al ihc doors in turn; 
but his language sounded like Chinese." 

Still blithe and carefree, the boys alighted at Mortcirf, to hilkt for a 
night in the neighborhood of Moroux, all unmindful of the ihrill awaiting 
them.

CHAPTER V 

THE VESLE DEFENSIVE 

THE Americans had Ini'ii tearing up the Chateau Thierry salient like a 
bunch of wildcats. (Quoting from the Brooklyn Daily Eaglt% "they had 
broken down the morale of the Germans, squeezed them out and were 
driving the Huns before them with a dash that would not be denied. Jerry 
was moving back so fast that the divisions trailing him were exhausted, having 
given of their best until it was only the spirit 
which held them together. The 4th Division had 
relieved the 42d and taken up the advance through 
the Foret de Nesle. It had i)ressed madly on 
against stubborn, deadly, machine-gun resistance, 
and had forced the lighting to the banks of the 
Vesle." 

Through St. Thibaut, across the river and 
into the city of Bazoches they had advanced, there 
to be overwhelmed by ever>'thing the Germans 
could pour down upon their heads_from the ])re- 
cipitous hill rising out of the disputed cit}-. 
Companies of the 4th which had ventured over the 
river never returned, and their dead still lay in the 
burning sun of No Man's Land, unburied. On 
the southern bank of the river, the American line had stabilized, leaving the 
"Hell hole of the Vesle" strewn with the bodies of friend and foe alike. To 
reach them was out of the question. 

Quoting again, "the hold of the 4th r)i\ision, its ranks so sadly and 
terribly depleted, was getting very tenuous. Relief must come at once, for 
there was danger that at any moment the enemy might learn of the thin 
American ranks; he had complete domination of the air," their planes not 
only observing uninterruptedly all movement, but co-operating with the 
artiller>' by spotting targets and dro]:)ping air bombs at will. That Division 
was practically shot to pieces when the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry, 
vanguard of the 77th Division, swept into Fere en Tardenois. 

The 77th was through with its training; it was to be thrown into the 
breach with a suddenness that left no time for deliberation or conjecture or 
for screwing the courage to the sticking point. It was to essay the task of 
veteran lighting troops at a most important point though untried and un- 
tested — to oppose the most efficient fighting force the Crerman war machine 
could present. 

On Saturday, August 10th, captains were moved to ask their companies 
to forgive them for anything uni)lcasant that might ha^•e happened in the 
past. Rush orders had come in, to supply the men with all the ammunition

was the historic IMarne, deep and swift and blue, and the bridges wliich had 
cost American engineers so dearly to build. The route lay through Fere en 
Tardenois, where another frightful struggle had taken place, and beyond it as 
night came on, to the Foret de Nesle, where we debussed and made tracks for 
the concealing forest. 

To the north could be heard the muflfled roar of heavy artillery, and we 
realized that things were about to happen. Some there were who had lost 
blood brothers in that fighting and who were anxious to be avenged; aU knew 
that the gentle days of the Lorraine Sector were past and gone; but they 
'lowed as how "tight" was painted all over 'em. 

The woods that night, so dense and black that a hand could not be seen 
before the face, reeked of horrid, ghastly smells. The men had aU been 
warned that there was likelihood of a gas attack, and in consequence precipi- 
tated a series of nervous alarms, ere the morning light revealed disgusting 
evidences of the Germans' hurried evacuation. An M Company ofhcer awoke 
to find close beside him the half -buried body of a dead Boche whose hand 
stuck straight up out of the soil like a sign post. There were uncounted 
thousands of shell, mutely testifying to the enemy's utter lack of intention to 
have quit the area without a grim struggle. Illimitable quantities of discarded 
equipment, rifles and helmets lay aU about; letters, postcards, belts of machine 
gun bullets, gas shells, Verj^ Ughts and bags of "kriegs tabac," which con- 
sisted of chopped oak and beech leaves. 

Wliile the chaplains next day, Sunday, heard confession, comforted, 
encouraged, counselled, received trinkets, keepsakes and other prized personal 
possessions, and pocketed the numerous in-case-I-never-can-write-again letters,

and while the lieutenants made sure that the helmets, gas-masks, rifles, 
bayonets, ammunition, bombs and stretchers were all present or accounted 
for, comi)any and battalion commanders went forward to have a peep, bringing 
back depressing and sobering tales. There were no trenches. The positions

we would move into, under shell fire, were nothing more than fox-holes dug 
here and there along a roadside, in the lee of any slight rise of ground, or in a 
railroad bank. A certain message sent back to one of the companies did not 
especially improve the morale of the men who heard it; it ran something like 
this: "The dugouts are mere holes in the ground. You wiU be shelled morn- 
ing, noon and night with shrapnel and high explosive, and during the inter\als 
between shelling, they will throw gas at you." 

Directly following this announcement, one battalion started filing past 
another which was still lined up along {the roadside. The air was tense. 
"My God! " a doughboy was heard to exclaim. " Look at that major's face." 

Before starting off for the relief at eight o'clock that night, ever>' man five 
paces from the one in front and single file, every rifleman carrying in addition 
to his full pack two extra bandoliers of calibre .30 ammunition, the auto- 
riflemen dragging an extra musette of Chauchat ammunition, all were cheer- 
fully and generally warned that they would doubtless be shelled on the way 
to their positions and that any casualties were to be left for the Sanitary 
Detachment to discover and pick up. Great for morale! 

It was a tumultuous tak'ng over of the lines. By devious shell-torn roads 
and lanes, through woods and muddy fields, the way led north toward the 
river, past a battery of naval guns whose sudden belching almost blew the 
wits out of us. Behind Les Pres Farm, where Regimental Headquarters was 
to make its stormy rendezvous, on the steep and slii:)per>- road, units of the 
306th were encountered marching in double file. Back and forth in the inky 
ravine the hopeless jumble of troops buckled and filled, w^hile all around us

feared during any relief. Major Dall, his guides, his Headquarters Detach- 
ment and a half platoon of G Company had hurried sereneh' on, blissfully 
ignorant of the circumstance in rear, while the offending parties who had'lost 
contact were severely reviled by their leaders, and scouts sent out into the night. 
At four o'clock, just as dawn was silhouetting the gaunt ruins of St. Thibaut, 
G Company hove into position on the right of the town, and the platoons of 
H Company struggled down the sunken road leading into the village, hurrying 
into position before the movement should be clearly visible to the observant 
Boches. Past the little brick house on Dead Man's Corner, around which the 
bullets whistled night and day, and into their several positions they crept. 

The Regiment took over a sector extending from well to the left of St. 
Thibaut to the Chateau Diable, the left of the line confronting Bazochcs, 
one of the most sadly wrecked towns imaginable. The Third Battalion was 
on the right, the Second on the left, F Company crossing the river and finding 
meagre shelter under the railroad track west of Bazoches. Because four regi- 
ments had not been able to make parallel advances by motor, and because 
there was not time for an instant's delay in strengthening the front, the 
Three Hundred and Fifth alone took over the entire sector of the exhausted 
4th Division. After twenty-four hours in close support, the First Battalion 
went in on the extreme right, taking over a piece from the 28th Division. 

Jerry had opened up with his usual nightly entertainment. All the boys 
ofjA Company but one seemed to need no further encouragement to dive into 
their funk holes. The little fellow "got his wind up" a bit and ran to his

'i'his position outdid even our worst dreams. On that forward slope, 
there was no ])rotection whatsoever from shell and machine gun fire in moving 
from one ]ilatoon to another. .All da\' long, the "ash cans," "iron cigars" 
and "Minnies" tame tumbling into \'ille Sa\oye and St. Ihibaut, while the 
famous sni])ing piece of the .\ustrians, the SS, jilayed incessantly. Ordi- 
narily, there is time to llop on the ground or otherwise dodge the oncoming 
shell, the screaming whine of which is heard o\erhead for a considerable 
inter\al ere the exjjlosion. Some of them e\en .seem to float aloft and to 
hang there, as if contemplating where to make a big killing. It is said that 
one doesn't hear the shell that kills him. But the 88 or "whizz-bang" is 
ditYerent, and by far the most terrifying of all. Its flat trajectory and high 
\elocity make it a large calibre rifle, with which moving trucks or even indi- 
\iduals are often sniped. So fast does the shell tra\Tl that the explosion is 
])ractically coincident with the whine. There is no time to dodge. The boys 
were later much amused at a definition of "whizz-bang" which a])iK"ared in 
the /^/^//(7/» published by the Regimental Auxiliary. "The 'whizz-bang,' " it 
said nonchalantl\-, "is a small shell, making a peculiar sound!"

P. C. Into the smaU, littered courtyard vagrant ammunition and ration- 
carrying details would scurr>' for shelter, though of actual protection there 
was none. Thither the rattling hand-drawn hmber would clatter at twilight 
down the sunken road and draw up with a flourish, much to the consternation 
of the company commander, who didn't want all the Boches in the world to 
think it the hub of the universe. 

Although it was almost beUeved that the Germans were sparing, as an 
artillery aiming point, the few remains of the church tower which stood be- 
tween that buUding and the front, and that in consequence it escaped destruc- 
tion, a more soUd though more damp old wine cellar was found in the lee of 
the crumbling church in which to establish the telephones, and to measure 
out the orders as they came through. This was taken over and later used by 
the several companies which in turn occupied that position. 

There had been accidents and minor casualties within our ranks before 
this time. But here we really began to see our brothers in arms faUing beside 
us. The first sight of a bleeding arm or a wounded shoulder was startling 
enough. But when, for instance, one first saw a Minnenwerfer drop its tre- 
mendous charge in the sand bank just above the point where several comrades 
had dug for protection, burying all, mangling two of them beyond recognition, 
a shiver ran through the heart. One knew then what war could be. 

It had been a popular superstition that soldiers new to the dirtier side 
of the game would somehow be initiated into it gradually, perhaps by brigading 
small units with experienced troops for a while. Yet, here were men who had 
never experienced a barrage, or a gas attack, or seen a man shot down or

blown to atoms — men who had no mean-, of knowinj^, a-^idc I'loni their own 
spirit of determination, whether or not as a body they could \)l\v tn a inii^h 
a game at which veterans have been known to lose. Given the mn-t miimi' mt 
task of their lives, these boys j-- 
simph' had to do without ques- 
tion of failure or doubt of success 
the difficult job assigned to 
them. Yet everything was so 
new, and they so untried! They 
had much to 'earn, and had to 
learn it all at once. 

"Dutch" Richerts, early 
in the game, found out what 
a "dud" was; one passed so 
close to his ear that it knocked 
him i3at, scaring liim so that he 
talked Bohemian for fifteen 
minutes wdthout realizing it. 
Folks had talked about shell 
splinters. The platoon ser- | 
geants of I Company stood near

tions. A high explosive shell burst'about five hundred yards away. Thirty 
seconds later, something was heard to fall near the funk hole. They dug a 
ragged ten-pound chunk of red hot iron out of the earth. Splinters! 

"Iron maidens," huge trench mortar shells with steel fins to maintain 
correct position during flight, had been lobbing over into the portion of the 
river bank held by the First Battalion. Soon the air was streaked with an 
unholy flickering of streaming lights, like an army of racing fireflies gone mad. 
Few had even heard of phosphorized cartridges, or tracer bullets. One 
swarthy little Italian, horrified and indignant, crept over to his corporal to 
say, "Gee, Corp, dey shoota da redda hot bullets!" 

We had heard before about shelling; but here we made its acquaintance. 
The German knew every foot of the ground like a book, and he read ever\- 
topographical line of it again and again, his artillery observers wearing 
their keenest spectacles. He threw at us everything but his own trenches, 
and yet the men found courage to joke and jest about their horrible 
experiences. 

Corporal Kelly of K Company was hit, but he still wore his Irish smile. 
"Jim," he called. "Come over here a minute. Take this message and send 
it for me." And then like the tired business man he dictated to his stenog- 
rapher while Jim wrote: "Somewhere in France. To Mr. KeUy of Buffalo. 
Died happy. Dennis." Jim and Denny both laughed heartily; and a few 
days later, back in the hospital, Dennis died. 



KM) A HISTORY OF THE 3()5th INFANTRY 

Dead bodies lay in some instances just beyond our parapets; an effort to 
reach them would have been madness. Dead horses lay in the streets insuf- 
ficiently covered by fallen masonrv,-. The bur>-ing details were terrible, the 
men wearing gas masks. Some bright youth disco\'ered that the work on 
dead horses could be speeded up, a smaller hole being necessary if the legs of 
the beasts were sawed oi^". Flies, naturally, were hideously thick, penetrating 
even to the blackest depths of a damp cellar. They swarmed into the "chow," 
on account of which, the men at first might have left it untouched. But 
hunger is no chum of fastidiousness. Presently, it was considered no hardship 
at all patiently to pick the frolicsome fly out of the mess-kit. The atmosphere 
reeked in the sultry sun of terrible carrion odors, burnt powder, mustard 
gas. sneezing gas and dust. 

Little wonder that on a diet of "goldfish," flies and water the men really 
suffered from dysenter\-. It is reported that an officer hoped to get a wound 
stripe for cutting his finger opening a can of salmon. Well, he deserves a 
wound stripe for eating salmon. A quantity of the salmon and gas-soaked 
bread had been left by the units relieved, and for a time the Quartermaster 
Department seemed unable to offer anything but fish as the meat component. 
Water was difficult to get. The water points of St. Thibaut were very soon 
shelled out, which necessitated fetching from a stream that ran through the 
bloody fields. P'ish and sunshine made it almost impossible to exist on one can- 
teenful a day. Into Ville Savoye the Germans poured a constant stream of 
machine gun fire, sneezing gas and high e.xplosive, and rained shrajinel into the 
water points at inter\als of about every two minutes. .\ man would rush to 
the fountain immediately after a shell-burst, hang a pail on the spout and re- 
tire, then run out again to retrieve the pail after the next burst. Safe in the 
back areas, a Coq)s inspector sought to raise Hob with someone, when it was 
admitted that Lyster bags of cool chlorinated water were not hanging out 
under the trees where the men might conveniently use them I 

In the Alairie of Ville Savoye still hung a list of the five remaining civilians 
whose actions had been closely observed by the Boches. Much of the wheat 
had been harvested by the enemy; gardens were in full bloom. Immense 
piles of firewood were stacked high against the coming of winter. The houses, 
terribly shattered, had been hastily ransacked, the furniture ruthlessly 
smashed; on the floors were litters of family records and correspondence, tin- 
t>-pes, and photographs of self-conscious brides and bridegrooms. Out of 
a great hall clock the brass works had been taken and done up into a neat 
bundle— but forgotten in the hasty retirement. German sign-posts were at 
every crossroad, the fountains marked "Trinkwasser." The Third Battalion, 
occupying this \-illage and the terrain in front, had decidedly the worst posi- 
tion, being subject to constant observation and machine gun fire. Battalion 
Headquarters functioned with difficulty in the cellar of an old house forward of 
the \illage church -in which were found bodies of an .\merican lieutenant and 
several men, dead for some time, and impossible to bury on account of the 
shelling. The entrance to the First Aid station in an abandoned wine cellar

"The Boches kept shelling it continually; they had perfect observation

they would throw over three shells, taking the town bit by bit. WTien any one 
appeared on the street they gave us a little extra, although I must say they 
left our ambulances alone except when they thought we were using them for 
covering some tactical move. Our headfjuarters was in the cellar of a former

maps, writing messages and trying to get an answer over the phone. The 
gas seemed to linger more than we had expected. We discovered soon that 
part of what we thought was gas was the fragrance of six dead Americans in 
the yard next door. Poor devils' The shelling had been so hot that nobody 
had had a chance to bury them. Toward noon we had our first casualty. 
Lieut. Clokey with two runners came from his company headquarters to report 
their position to the major. The Bochcs dropped a shell beside him which tore 
ofi part of his face and killed one of his runners. Clokey came staggering 
into our little cellar and we patched him up crudely with our first-aid packets. 
Then I ventured out with him to the First Aid station and he was evacuated 
that afternoon. (He came back to the regiment later with a brand new piece 
of face and looking not ver\- much the worse for his misfortune.) 

"The next day we moved our headquarters to a ravine about 300 yards 
outside the town. Although it was wide open to the sky, this was a more 
comfortable spot. Each of us dug a hole in the side of the ravine, and for 
an office we had a piece of corrugated iron for a roof and camouflaged it with 
bushes. As we had to be constanth- going and coming, it didn't take tlie 
Boche long to discover our new location. P>om that moment he included 
us in his strafing of the town, but our ravine was so small and the sides so 
steep that he couldn't quite get us. His shells would drop on each lip of 
the ravine, but he never got more than a fragment of shell into the ravine 
itself, although he gave us ]ilenty of gas. His airplanes were what we feared 
most."

had been nearly burned out of the First .\id Post, McDonald and Eidlen, 
cooks of First Battalion Head(|uarters, ventured down to the burning building 
and made a dozen canteens full of steaming coffee oxer the glowing raflt'rs. 
The}- outwitted the Boihes and gave Battalion Hea(l(|uarlers their first hot 
food in ii\'e days. 

A grimy private made his wa\ to a lieuti-nant with the (omplaint: 
"They've got some raw bacon down there, but won't issue it." 

"Would you care to eat raw bacon?" 

"Yes, sir." 

"Raw? Vou know, it can't be cooked here." 

"Yes, sir." 

"Well- if you can eat raw bacon, I guess there's no reason \\h\' you 
shouldn't." And he did — they all did, and smacked their lips over it. 

If the doughboy stopped to think at all about the (juantity of stuff

There were no serious kicks about the meagreness or the strangeness of 
the rations; that was all in the game, and relief would come soon A good 
batch of cigarettes would have been a happy thought; but the famous front 
echelon of the Y. M. C A. was not i)ersonally represented. Wait, though! 
Some battered cookies and a few cigarettes urrr sent up on a ration carrying 
party, to he sold! 

The only real comi)lainl was the result of the Germans' uninterrui)ted, 
undisputed supremacy of the air. The men had to grit their teeth while 
planes darted overhead, raked the positions with machine gun fire, threw hand 
grenades even, spotted batteries and unloaded their bombs. Some of the 
bomb holes on the river bank were large enough to bury a whole platoon. 
This, despite the reassuring utterances from the rear to the effect that Ameri- 
can and Erench airmen dominated the situation. Tt was some de])artment 
far in rear, too, which discovered at a time when the bullets whistled merrih- 
through our positions that the enemy had withdrawn, and ordered out daylight 
patrols on the afternoon of the 13th. Lieutenant Peter Wallis and eight men 
swam the Vesle to see. Only one of the party was ever heard from again, a 
sergeant wounded and taken ])risoner. 

Private McGee, of I'' Company, writes of several patrols:

|)ositi()ns and the places where the (iermans hun^' out durinj^ the daw Theri' 
were twelve in the party, all armed to the teeth. We started out het'ore dark 
for the purpose of getting there ahead of the enemy and, if possible, to see 
what holes he crawled out of, and to watch them take up their positions. It's 
hard to let a Boche crawl l)y without taking a pot shot at him; hut xou know 
that if you let him go, he's sure to gi\e awa\ a gun position. 

"in order to get there without being seen, we had to tra\el several 
hundred \ards through a big swamp that was all chewed up b\- shells and 
the mud uji to your neck in places. .\t the end of this swamp we struck a 
suspicious-looking place where there were se\eral dugouts from which teK'- 
phone wires ran up into a tree that might ha\e Ixvn used for an obserxation 
post. We figured that our (ierman friends might li\e in there, so we took an 
unhealthy position on the edge of the swamp and watched. 

"In this way we gradually located si.x gun positions, but the Boche sud- 
denly located us and acted as if he thought a general attac k was coming over, 
because he opened up a young hell in the filthy swamp with all the machine 
guns and some of his artillery with gas. high e.\plosi\e and shrapnel. We 
couldn't go through it, so Bob Farmer placed his men and said, 'Vou hang 
on here no matter what hapjjens.' That was nine P. M. and we had no over- 
coats and the night was cold; and sitting in the mud and cold did not feel like 
the first row in the Winter Garden. Here we lay under almost continuous 
artillery fire, with ])lenty of gas that don't smell wry .sweet, until about 4.,^() 
.\. M., and that was the time that old Jerr\- sure ()i)ened e\er\- gun he had

on the swamj). We just laid there and gasped for breath, and our dream of 
Hoboken was starting to evaporate, and we were wishing we were back with 
the company once more, praying our 304th, 305th and 306th Artillery would 
open all together and blow the Boches to HeU. 

"At 5.15 he swung his barrage over to our company position, but he kept 
looking at us out of the corner of his eye all the time. We figured this would 
be as good a time as any to work our way back to the company and wondered 
if there would be anytliing left of it when we got there. We got near the old 
trenches and sent out a scout, who said the company was O. K. We were 
happy but so exhausted we had to lay there half an hour before starting to 
crawl in one by one. The captain was amazed to see us back alive and 
thanked us for finding six enemy gun positions for the artillery to blast out. 
For our reward we received a full cup of coffee per man, thus beating Osfeld's 
patrol by half a cup." 

An interesting account of a reconnaissance patrol characteristic of many 
sent out to gain information of the enemy's positions and suspected move- 
ments follows : 

"We were under almost constant machine gun fire, without knowing 
absolutely where it came from. 'Mac,' said the Top, about four o'clock, 
'how do you feel? Bloodthirsty?' 

"'Anything you say.' 

"'Then you're going out tonight with Osfeld, Soufiflas and Corporal 
Schwartz to find where those guns are.' 



THE VESLE DEFENSIVE 



"At eleven o'clock we gulped a bit, saying 'So long!' to our pals, and 
crawled over the top toward the (xerman lines about two hundred yards 
away. The shells fell pretty thick while we wi're crawling over badly 
chewcd-up ground that smelt gas-soaked; and tlie (lernian flares made us 
duck and lie cjuiet every few feet. 

"About a hundred and fifty yards out, I should sa)-, we heard what 
sounded like a bird whistle close by; wc decided that no birds would be out 
at midnight and besides, they don't like high explosive. So we lay quiet like 
cats watching a mouse. Presently we heard the steel click of a cartridge belt 
being fitted into a 'typewriter.' 'J'hey must have seen us, sure. But just 
then two Boches darted from behind an old tree stump, running up to the 
position with ammunition boxes. I'rom there they ran back to a corner of 
the chateau where another 'typewriter' started chattering. We could hear 
the Huns in front of us whispering and tinkering with their gun, .so we decided 
to make a getaway, having spotted three guns. 

"Our knees were very sore from the rough ground and Osfeld said, " What 
do you say we hike a bit?' I said, 'Anything you say, Phil,' and the quartet 
decided to run about twenty feet, then flop, listen and run again. At last we 
tumbled over the j^arapet, and reported the two guns, which our 75's blew 
out in the morning." 

Four days and nights the Regiment stood up under its first severe ]iun- 
ishment, the only reinforcements a live mule salvaged b\- I{ ("omjjany. The 
Germans seemed to know that the relief was due, and earl\- in the ewning

of the 15th commenced pouring a steady streatn of ga^ and metal mto tlit 
American Hnes. It was a peculiarity of \"ille Savoye, which lhc\ knew lull 
well, that gas would linger in and about the village as in a pocket. The>- 
filled it full, particularly the sunken road leading therefrom and the areas 
behind the town. There was no wind to disperse the fumes. In the earl\ 
hours of the morning men were feeling the ettects despite the use of masks, 
all but ten of M Company's entire personnel being evacuated for mustard 
burns about the body and the eyes. Then and there, they adopted as their 
company song. Too Much Mustard. B\- daylight, the relieving company 
of the 308th Infantn,- found their way into the town, practically all of them 
being evacuated later that day as a result of coming in contact with the 
mustard gas. 

The relief of the battalion was not completed until the following night. 
As Companies I, K and L left their positions, they came into the gas-infected 
areas and many of them were also burned. All in all, the battalion sustained 
about four hundred casualties. 

Again, quotmg from the letters of Captain Kenderdine, then .\djutant 
of the First Battalion : 

"According to schedule, we were to be relieved at the end of the T.fth daw 
but the relieving battalion failed to get us on two successi\T nights and we 
were kept there se\-en days. Our supply of rations ran out at the end of the 
fifth day, and for two days we had virtually nothing to eat e.xcept a little that 
I managed to bring in on my way back on the last day. On the night before 
the seventh da>- the relieving battalion managed to get to our positions, but

not until dawn. We tried to risk getting out even then, but to get out in 
daylight one was under constant observation, as the hillsides were almost 
bare. We sent out one company o\'er the hill at about seven .\. M., but the\' 
got pretty badly shot at, so the major wisely ordered the rest of the battalion 
to stand pat. By that time they had started to go out and had pulled out 
of their i)ositions in the valley. The only thing to do was for them to come 
into the ravine (which was at the base of the hill) until dark. This they did, 
and three-quarters of a battalion sat huddled in the ravine all day, j^raying 
that our luck would hold good and that the Boches would fail to register 

on the ravine itself. 

******** 

"The major was naturally worrieil b\- the battalion not having got out. 
So I took a staunch little Irish boy as orderly and we made a dash for it over 
the hill and back to Regimental Headriuarters with a re])()rt of our situation. 
Instead of being angry at our failure to get out during the night the Colonel 
was all sympath\'. He took me in to report to the General. He pressed me 
to stay for luncheon, but I had only time for a cup of cofTee and a sandwich 
(and Lord, how good it tasted!). Then I went to the Y. M. C. A. hut and 
bought all the cigarettes, chocolates and crackers they would sell me. The 
Colonel loaded me up with canned food and hardtack, and I made m\' wa\- 
back to Battalion Headquarters, where I was welcomed with open arms and 
immediately relieved of my bag of food. 

"We all came out that night at dusk. Not a shot was fired. The men 
took off their packs on the main road beyond the crest of the hill. On that 
first trip to the lines they had carried everything they owned. I had been 
fortunate enough to arrange for four big trucks to come up that night and 
transport these packs to the rear. It was lucky I did, for the men were 
almost utterly e.xhausted. I stayed behind to supervise the loading of the 
packs and then rode out on one of the trucks. I was almost all in when I 
sat down on the soft leather seat by the driver. I immediately fell asleep, 
and one of my happiest moments in life was when some good soul of a Red 
Cross man stopped the truck in a village we jiassed through and poured a large 
cup of rich chocolate down my throat. The Battalion had arrived at their 
rest bivouac before I did. My striker had found my bedding roll there and 
spread it out under a tree. Never was an\- bed so comfortable. The Major, 
bless his heart! — gave orders that I shouldn't be awakened, and I slept for 
twenty hours straight." 

There were no irregularities in that first relief of the Second Battalion — 
nothing but the ordinary casualties and plenty of excitement. Shells fell thick 
and fast, while machine gun bullets rattled through the streets of St. Thibaut 
spattering savagely on stone walls. "Just take a look at this," said Captain 
Dodge, from the entrance to the okl wine cellar. Over to the eastward bil- 
lowing smoke and a flame-hued sky silhouetted the spectral walls of the ruined 
town. Spiteful bursts of rifle and machine gun fire and a thundering barrage

could be heard both right and left, earth rocking explosions and, comforting 
through it all, the scream of our own shells, live for one, winging northward. 
One recalled Alan Seeger's lines: 



"1 have a rendezvous with death 
At midnight, in some flaming toivn.'" 

Somehow in the darkness groping figures found their new places, while 
shadowy forms in single file hastened into the gas-filled, shell-torn road, hug- 
ging the comforting embankments, walls and ridges, ready to flop whenever 
a screaming whine came too close. No fear of the men losing contact! Jerry 
dropped a few 77's on the tail of the disappearing column and although 
the pace was increased to about four miles an hour, they miraculously closed 
up. Out of the darkness came a clattering team of runaway mules hitched 
to a limber, headed straight for the front hnes, crashing into the column of 
struggUng men, bruising and breaking bones. Anon, the cry of " Gas" as the 
head of the column would strike a pocket of it. Here and there an overturned 
wagon, supplies scattered bewilderingly o\Tr the road, the slain animals cast 
into the ditch. The hills above Cherv-Chartreuve belched forth their con- 
stant fireworks, deafening those plodding past who felt sure that by the fitful 
glare they stood revealed to German gunners. It was HeU let loose. Toward 
Mareuil, the roads seemed hopelessly jammed with artillery trains, camions, 
field pieces, grunting and clanking tractors prying the "heavies" into positions 
where whole companies of artUlerymen were sweating with pick and shovel

against the oncoming dawn. Here and there a ruined truck blown across the 
road blocked the path temporarily, adding to the general confusion. 

On this terrible night, the men of the Sanitary Detachments i)ro\cd their 
mettle. Seemingly always forgotten when general orders were issued, "board- 
ing" at whoevcr's kitchen happened to be nearest to their station, nexer re- 
ceiving very much publicity, they were alwa}s there with the big, fat pack and 
quick to respond to pathetic cries of "First Aid!" During the reh'ef. Privates 
Coorman, (liordano and Liebman were the last to leave St. 'Iliibaut in the 
heavy concentration of gas and high ex])losi\-e. Proceeding slowly along the 
road, they searched all the dugouts and funk holes, picking u]) wounded and 
gassed men. It was impossible to see with masks on, due to the heav\- smoke. 
With just the mouth-piece and nose-slip adjusted, they continued their work, 
gathering together twelve wounded and gassed men who otherwise would ha\e 
in all probability remained there until the next da}'. As only one ambulance 
was available, it was necessary for them to remain on the road for three hours 
until all the wounded could be evacuated. It took four storni\- trijjs to and 
from Chery-Chartreuve to accomplish this. And then, although exhausted 
from the work and lack of sleep and sick from the effects of gas, the\- reported 
at noon of the next day, to assist in treating the casualties from Ville Savoye, 
persisting in refusing hospital treatment inasmuch as the>- were temjjorarily 
the only Sanitary Corps men available. Tlieir work in this instance is typical 
of the devoted, self-sacrificing service rendered to their brothers in the Regi- 
ment all through our battle ex])eriences.

down — in a little pocket of mustard; how, when you turned to the man sitting 
beside you to say, "Buddy, give me a drink," he didn't reply. He sat there 
dead. 

Next morning you discover that the rest isn't to be all idleness; you dig 
a system of support trenches and reserve trenches, while others at the front 
are taking up their share of the dirty work. After a brief period of days you 
move up into the woods behind St. Thibaut perhaps, in support, there to grub 
in the sand all day and dodge shells all night. From there you move on up, 
for your second tour of duty at the front, this tune less awed by what the 
Boche flings over, and hearing a fervently expressed desire "to take that 
hill!" 

During this time, when companies skipped from "red" line to "green" 
line to "blue" line and back to "red" again, feeling like a bunch of darned 
chameleons, first in brigade reserve, then regimental support, then division 
reserve, regimental reserve and so on, M Company comprised a body of forty 
stalwart vacationists, thorouglily familiar with the care and handling of horses. 
They had just returned from the horse-buying detail, to find practicaUv the 
entire company in the hospitals. 

During the month of August the French imder General Mangin began 
to exert a flanking pressure up in the northwest and the 77th Division, more 
used to the bitter fighting, increased its frontal pressure. In the words of 
the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, "it could be seen that they were growing uneasy

and it was important to establish the extent of the uneasiness — to learn if 
they were preparing to evacuate. 

"One of the great feats of the war resulted. Major William Mack, who 
was at that time a 1st Lieutenant in command of G Company, Three Hundred 




int Lt. De Rahm's 
ision to the .A.isne. 



120 A HISTORY OF THE 3 5th INFANTRY 

and Fifth, and 1st Lieutenant Leonard Cox, then 2d Lieutenant of B Company, 
Three Hundred and Fifth, vohinteered to lead a patrol over the river in broad 
daylight to establish just what the situation was. They took ten other vol- 
unteers of Companies B and C of the Three Hundred and P'ifth Infantr>% 
Sergeant John Blohm, Coq^oral Peter J. Kiernan, Corporal Solomon Catalan©, 
and Privates Frederick Barth, Clarence H. Koehler, Raphael Cohan, Vincent 
Bisignano, Frederick M. Meury and Joseph Bridgeman. The party left the 
village of St. Thibaut in broad dayhght. 

"At the Vesle, Mack left the others and swam across. Cox followed, 
carrj'ing a heaw coil of rope. He crawled out into the river on sunken logs 
and other debris until he was up to his arm-pits in the swift flowing stream. 
Then, after repeated attempts, he managed to throw an end of the rope across 
to Mack, who fastened it on the other side. All of the patrol got across the 
river by means of the rope. On the other side, the patrol was divided into 
two parties of five men each. Mack taking one and Cox the other. 

"Mack and his men went into the village of Bazoches, making their way 
past the enemy outposts and getting along finely until they surprised four 
Germans in an old house. Mack and his patrol got the jump on the Germans, 
killed several of them and withdrew, fighting desperately all the while, although 
under heaw machine gun fire. All of the party except Sergeant Blohm were 
wounded, Koehler and Cohan mortally. AH of them made good their with- 
drawal, Mack having secured much valuable information. 

"On the way out, Sergeant Blohm took shelter in a shell hole and saw 
Corporal Catalano, bleeding profusely from a wound in the neck, just barely 
able to drag himself along through the grass. Blohm promptly left his shelter, 
carried Catalano behind a tree near the river, there dressed his wound, and 
then broke boughs from a fallen tree so as to make a raft. On this improvised 
raft he placed Catalano and pulled him across the river. Arriving on the 
other side, he carried Catalano over an open field fully 200 yards to the outpost 
line, all of the time being under continuous rifle and machine gun fire. And 
Sergeant Blohm had two brothers who were fighting in the German Army! 

"Lieutenant Cox, meanwhile, had led his part of the patrol into the 
chateau where he shot down two men as they were about to open fire on his 
men. He wounded another, and the party decided it was time to move. 
Although Cierman machine gun and rifle fire fairly blasted the air, the entire 
patrol got out without a man being injured and got back to their own lines. 

"The commander of the Third Army Corps, to which the 77th was 
attached, recommended all of the men in the patrol for a citation, and Mack. 
Cqx and Blohm were awarded the Distinguished SerA'ice Cross." 

But on the next morning, September 4th, Lieutenant De Rham and a 
patrol of thirty men from C Company swam the river and with slight oppo- 
sition gained the heights beyond, from which point their rocket signal "Ob- 
jective reached" precipitated a general advance. 

The Division was on its way to the Aisne.

THE ADVANCE TO THE AISNE 

THK Second BaUalion had been reliexed again, dra.i;j;in<^ its wearv feet 
hack to Mareuil en Dole all through the night of Se])temher Lst, moving 
on backward the following night through Nesle to Sergy, twenty kilos 
from the front. " Next morning, we started in before breakfast to pick cooties 
from our clothes by the hundreds, to splash in the River ()urc(|, a dink>- stream 
hardly big enought to hold a fish, and to he around naked in the grass. First 
call for drill blew. We cursed like Bowery hoboes for we were tired, and the\ 
were starting to hand out their dizzy orders to drill. All we wanted was an 
opportunity to write home; but no chance, as they figured on getting all the 
work they could out of us. That was unfair, for we done our work well and 
figured we earned a rest for all the stuff that was pulled off up on the Vesle." 

The night of the .?d the tired troops were roused from their slumbers by 
a stirring Call to Arms. Messengers ran up with orders to roll combat packs 
and be ready to move out at a moment's notice. After waiting interminably, 
an officer hiked to Battalion Headquarters for further instructions, only to 
find the entire establishment sound aslec]). 

But by noon of the following day, it was rumored that the German was 
on the run. Off to the northward jxicked the troops in haste, picking up) 
rations, ordnance and ammunition amidst all the hustle and bustle and flurrv

at Nesle. As tar as the old positions at Mareuil en Dole the columns struggled 
under a broiling sun, only to be ordered onward to the Bois de Mareuil, where 
everjf man got two hand grenades, ammunition for rifle, pistol and Chauchat, 
and the weight}- old rifle grenades. The tromblons or grenade dischargers 
were long since conveniently "lost" on account of their weight. But there 
was no rest for wear\- bodies. The other battalions had crossed the river, 
and this one must occupy a strong position in old St. Thibaut. There it rested 
for the night, thoroughly spent. 

The success of de Rham's patrol had sent the entire First BattaUon under 
temporary command of Captain Purcell over the river to positions previously 
designated on the plateau to the north. The Third Battalion followed under 
command of Lieutenant Husband, Major Woodward having been evacuated, 
sick. An order to resume the advance kept the men on their feet most of the 
night. In skirmish line they ploughed around in circles, one company hope- 
lessly lost, accomplishing an advance of about two kilometers. 

How dift'erent St. Thibaut looked at dusk, as the Second BattaUon filed 
through, even more crumpled and twisted than it had been three days before. 
Old Number Thirteen was still standing. But instead of shells crashing 
right and left, instead of the streets being deserted, here were columns of 
troops in single file, motor trucks, limbers, fourgons, ammunition trains boldly 
occupying a^•enues down which had poured streams of machine gun bullets, 
waist-high and whistling. There was the old First Aid station, now a pile of 
stone and dust, and the embankment where the first casualties had occurred; 
but the curiosity seekers were to be denied further reminiscent investigation. 
Enemy shelling had diverted traffic to the west over a hastily constructed

bridge and through the old railroad yards where the 306th had a week before 
lost the better part of an entire company in attacking Bazoches. Here and 
there lay the dead of the previous month's fighting, although burying and 
salvaging parties had that day slartefl a search and a cleaning up of the 
former No Man's Land. 

The advance through Bazoches was as calm and cjuict as the seventh 
inning of a world's series game at the Polo (Grounds; there was shelling a little 
bit further up the river, the enem}- ha\ing the wrong tip on our bridges. We 
crossed the battered railroad track behind which forward elements had once 
dug for protection, and which we secretly ho])ed the engineers would rapidly 
reconstruct so that we could use it soon when mo\ing out to a rest area. 

vSkirting the town, other columns struggled through the jam of vehicular 
traffic to the Rheims-Rouen road, thence east and north around the base 
of the ominous hill which had confronted us for so many days, and from which 
the Germans had poured down on our heads a rain of machine gun bullets, 
"Minnies" and 88's. Full in the road lay the body of a (ierman soldier 
over which the trucks were passing, to and fro. ".\h" said the boys, "there's

Germans were mighty anxious 
to reach the heights of the

Company had been ordered into position to the right of Villers en Prayeres, 
and had sought shelter from a terrific burst of shelling in a small ravine where 
they were virtually imprisoned for several days. B Company entered the 
latter village and took position in the outskirts of it, A Company extending 
to the left. The Third Battalion was hurried into the breach offered by the 
exposed fiank, unable to make much effective progress in the dead of night, 
but hoping to get there before the enemy could launch a counter attack, which 
would have been disastrous indeed for D Company in its precarious position. 
At this juncture, a message came through from the French to the effect 
that they politely and earnestly hoped for the capture of Longueval. Major 
Metcalf sat calmly on a log several kOos beyond it. A few minutes before, 
the 1st sergeant and clerk of C Company had stumbled into it seeking shelter, 
and hoping to find some point where the affairs of the company might 
be administered. Since it was "held" by a 1st sergeant and a company 
clerk was it not proper to report the town as already captured by C Com- 
pany? 

"In this locality there were numerous excavations and old limestone 
quarries which afforded considerable shelter, although likely gas pockets. 
These positions were consolidated by additional digging, and the Regiment 
entered upon another period of semi-stabilized warfare, such as had been 
experienced on the Vesle, while our artillery crowding up from the rear grad- 
ually increased the din. Shelling, during the days and nights of the advance, 
and particularly after the Regiment had dug itself in, was at times of the 
most furious densitv- The German batteries would seem to let loose in aU

reputation. Shelled out of that second j^lace, they sought a third, finall\- 
doing a successful business in an old French sheet-iron dugout. During the 
day the men found not much to do, excepting to draw rations and axoid 
88's, which came in more liberal doses than the rations. Back in tln' >u])- 
port positions of the Second Battalion near Pincon P'arm, the shelling was 
just as hea\'y and just as constant. "Yet," said Captain Briggs, " I maintain 
that this helmet is no earthly good, whatsoever." That apjiarently ended 
the argument, for the Captain disappeared around an elbow of trench. .\t 
that instant, a shell burst on the parapet; in a moment, he staggered again

and difficult. The poor little devils not only had to carr>' messages back 
and forth, morning and night, always in readiness, but took their turn at 
carrying rations, standing gas guard through the night, and the like. When 
all is said and done, the runners perform one of the most difficult and important 
jobs the army in the field has to otTer. Our hats are otT to them. 

Those who drove the ration carts up through Vauxcere at night under 
fire in an eiifort to bring hot food to the wear>% mud-stained men in the 
trenches deserve their meed of praise as well. Despite their good work, sup- 
plies were often low. Beyond the support line at Pincon Farm everything 
had to be carried, in order to sustain those units feeling forward as far as the 
Aisne. A doughboy from D Company has a storj- to tell which he calls 
Fifty-fifty in the Front Lines: "During the advance, all we had in the Une 
of eats was our iron rations, consisting of one can of beef and about half 
a pound of hardtack; our kitchens of course couldn't go right along with us. 
Yet, I was lucky enough to have grabbed off an extra can of beef. After I 
had shared this with two other men, I was stripped clean, as far as food was 
concerned. So were most of the others. But food has nothing to do with 
orders, so we were soon on our way forward again, without food. Later in 
the day I managed to get a few hardtack and half a canteen of water off a 
dead man. That night I received orders to report to Battalion Headquarters, 
to which I was sometimes attached as scout, and next morning I was handed 
a nice job — looking for one of the companies which hadn't been heard from 
for some time. Gosh, but I was hungry, yet I couldn't stop. After searching

some ver>- fine quail." Not quite, but almost! Spitted and neatly broiled 
over a can of solidified alcohol was a scrawny old nondescri]it bird which a 
runner had picked up on the trail, killed b}- a shell fragment. 

The Third Battalion had taken over the front lines. Friday, the LUh. 
had been successfully tucked away without disaster, when 'long about the 
night of the 14th, came a welcome crowd of Italians trying to stuff both 
donkeys and drivers into the dugouts. The>- put six or seven men into a hole 
where two of us had felt crowded before, and left cabbage leaves, cheese rinds, 
and all sorts of garbage lying around. 

"Relieved by the Roman Arm}-, commanded by one of Old General 
Garibaldi's descendants," writes a doughbo\-. "They seemed to have precious 
little ammunition but lots of chow, which made them welcome. A very 
compact little army — men, mules, wagons, guns, everything all bunched up 
in the middle of the road as we had been taught not to do it. If Jerry had

was our happiness — for we thought we deserved a rest, having been 
under a continual nervous strain and worse since the latter part of June. 

A day of inspection followed one night of undisturbed rest. At -1.35 
a luscious meal was brewing merrily in the bursting kitchens, mess-kits itching 
for the welcome thud of chow upon their brilHant inner surfaces. But, "The 
battalions will be ready to march with full equipment at 4.30," read the order 
which dumped both fires and food upon the unappreciative ground while 
mystified men rolled up their baggage in preparation for the gruelling dash 
to Cohan and Coulonges. But that was all right. WTio wouldn't willingly 
sacrifice a dinner for the ride on lorries to "the big town?" 

"We'll sing till the lorries arrive," said a bunch of men sitting by the 
roadside at half -past eight. They did; but throats were raw, and the songs 
they sang dated back to the days of "Bedelia" long ere one o'clock, at which 
hour the stream of dusty camions drew up. Those French drivers had not 
slept under a roof for eight days, they said, having transported troops from 
one part of France to another without rest. Their driving showed it. With- 
out illumination of any kind, the trucks tore through the night. At dawn 
their speed in the direction of Verdun increased to the point of recklessness. 
Drivers dozed at the wheel and trucks collided, crushing the careless feet which 
hung over a tailboard; they ran into the ditch; they interviewed unyielding 
trees; one truck overturned, sending a couple of men with broken ribs to the 
hospital. Minor halts while in the districts of Champagne permitted hungry,

another order to roll them u]) again! At elexcn o\ lock the Regiment marched 
north. 

"Where are \vc going now?" Corj^orals asked their sergeants, and ser- 
geants asked their lieutenants. They, not knowing, asked the ])ri\ates who 
get things by wireless. "Why, to the big town; St. Menehould is just north 
of here!" You should have seen the men hike! It was a cinch to keep them 
from straggling — everyone in tine humor, believing that tinalh- he was on the 
way to the rail head. In tine humor until the column struggled lliroii'^h St.

of the provost guards. With blistered feet and aching bodies, a few found 
shelter: the others dropped from sheer exhaustion where halted in the street, 
despite the frantic protests of the French Cjuartered there who feared that 
enemy planes would discover the advent of American troops in a sector new 
to them. War gardens were plundered, for nothing edible arrived until the 
middle of the afternoon. When Colonel Smedberg remarked at Brigade 
Headquarters that the troops were much too crowded to enjoy this rest area 
the answer was, "We go into the line tomorrow." 

That night we relieved the French, taking over all but the forward out- 
posts, with heavy hearts.

CnAPTKR \II 

THE ARGONNE 

THE Western Front, siiuc the Autumn of 1<)14, had been a ,u;real fare 
protruding into France and frowning upon the Allied armies. The brow- 
rested on the English C'luinncl near Dunkerfjue, the features extending 
generally south to a point where the chin in Sei)tember i)r()truded as far as 
Noyon, in the direction of I'aris. Thence the jaw ran eastward past Soissons 
and Rheims to Verdun, whence the neck was drawn southeast toward the (|uicl 
of the Lorraine front. What might have been likened to the Adam's apple 
had been painfully amputated at St. Mihiel by the first .\mcriian .\rmy 
early in the month of Sejjtember. 

'I'hat First American Army, of which the 77th Dixision was now a part, 
was to strike a blow at the jaw of the great German face. Sincx- July 18th, 
the French, British, Americans and Belgians, under the general (onnnand of 
JVIarechal Foch, had been hammering the Boche on his soft spots, u.sing up 
his reserve patience and strength. The time was ripe for a knock-out blow- 
on the jaw, the major objective being the railroads running through Mezieres 
to Metz and Luxembourg, one of the enemy's great supply routes. 

The German front at this time has also been likened to a gigantic door, 
the hinges of it secured at Mezieres, swinging open at Belgium and the northern 
coast. As long as the hinges held, the great door might be closed in the face 
of an intruder. It was the task of the First Army to smash the hinges, and 
break down the doorl 

It did. 

It was not until the night of September 25th, as the First and Second 
Battalions were quietly taking their ])laces at the jump-off on the Le P'our 
de Paris-La Fille Morte line that wc realized our show was to be only a ])art 
of the greatest battle of the war. I'Vom Verdun to the Belgian Coast the 
Allied armies were to attack. Stunned by surprise and the savagery of that 
initial onslaught in the morning fogs of September 26th the foe recoiled, 
though lighting tenaciously, bitterl}-, treacherously, until utterly routed and 
crying quits in the first w-eek of November. Not only had their life-saving 
railroads through Mezieres been cut by long range artiller}-, but were almost 
within the actual grasp of the Allied armies! 

No one had any hallucinations now about visiting " the big town." Vet, 
this had all the earmarks of a quiet sector. Only a few shells w-inged their 
way in now- and then. Nobody would clamor loudly for a rest camp if the\- 
could be allowed to spend Christmas here performing the ordinar\- routine 
duties of a defensive position. After months of mud and squalor wouldn't 
you like to step from a moonlit balcony through a door — a real, honest-to- 
goodness door with a knob on it and panes of glass — into \-our own pri\ate

deep in the bowels of the defending hillside, turn into your own room, a room 
with latticed window, stone fire-place, electric lights, real furniture, the heavy 
beams in wall and ceiling painted white, the panels a cool gray and topped 
by a frieze of dainty cut-outs from La Vie Parisienne? 

This was the strongest, the most unique and comforting system of trenches 
one could imagine. In the early days of the war, the wavering lines had come 
to rest at this point. Attempts at gain by either side through the heavily 
wooded, deep ravines and abrupt ridges of the forest had proved futile and 
costly. 

Black, gloomy, forbidding, this largest expanse of woodland between 
the Mediterranean and the Rhine stretches a distance of thirty-nine kilo- 
meters from Passevant and Beaulieu in the south, with the big town of St. 
Menehould in its southern confines, to Grand-Pre and the valley of the River 
Aire on the north. On the eastern edge of the forest are Varennes, Mont- 
blainville, Cornay and St. Juvin. On its western boundary are the towns 
of Binarv'ille, Lancon and Grand Ham. For four years the upper twenty-two 
kilometers of it, held by the enemy, was a region of dark mysten,', its densely 
wooded hills and ravines, swamps, brooks, marshland, tangled underbrush, 
trailing vines and briars adapted by them into a vast, impregnable fortress. 

From time immemorial, the Argonne had proved a stumbling-block to 
military operations. Julius Caesar went around it; Napoleon avoided it; in 
this war, neither Germans nor French could push all the way through it; it 
remained for Alexander to concjuer. P'our years of desultor)- shelling, just 
enough to let the other side know that the fight was still on, four years of

occasional raids and minor actions had carved out of the forest a long stretch 
of bald and barren ridges, s])lintered trunks, yawning shell-pits — a scarred and 
battered wreckage of landscape. All life at first glance seemed extinct. 

But here were the evidences of incredible labor. Officers and non-coms, 
who crept stealthily forward to the P. P.'s and listening j)osts found a torn, 
twisted and tortuous maze of earthworks, caverns, pits, dugouts, emjilace- 
ments and barriers — outposts which were scarcely more than shell-holes in 
which man still dared to eke out a precarious existence. Here he was, out 
of sight — a grim and silent poilu, Chauchat gunner or sentinel watching 
from his hidden recess for signs of enemy activity, shifting his jjosition ever 
so carefully from time to time, speaking at rare intervals to one of his fellows 
in the merest whisper, cautioning the American up there on observation to 
utter no word of English, lest the Ciermans sense the impending attack. 

Peering timorously over a parapet one might see, not more than thirty 
\ards off in places, the German trenches crouching low behind their mountains 
of rusted and barbed wire entanglements, cheveaux de frise, refuse, tin cans, 
broken bits of materiel and equipment, wire and more wire. Lanes would 
have to be cut through all of that before the attacking troojis could hoi)e to 

Peqiendicular to the front, each one carefully mapped and named, the 
boyaus or connecting trenches clambered abruptly down into the ravines, then 
labored up over the ridges, many of them carved with steps into the solid 
rock and camouflaged, leading to the support systems and beyond. Here, 
daily work by the very few men necessary had by degrees made the trenches 
almost perfect. Nouveau Cottage, the elaborate concrete residence of the

and inviting to the tired troops who might come after. Only by a process of 
evolution through many seasons could that little city have been built in the 
wilderness. Beautiful dugouts, walks, stairways, balconies, kitchens, baths^ 
even an open-air theatre; an electric light ])lant; furniture, hangings, bric-a- 
brac, and even pianos in some of the huts! It was Heaven, after all the blood- 
shed, miser)- and disappointment we had been through. 

Many a poker game was broken up by stories the sergeants brought back 
from the front — that a dri\-e was about to start which would mean the end 
of the war, and that many an extra iirst-aid man would be on the job. Hurried 
letters w-ere written to the folks at home. Vigorous preparation for the on- 
slaught ensued, two extra bandoliers of ammunition, hand grenades, rifle 
grenades, wire cutters being issued — everything convenient to kill a man with. 
A copious supply of cigarettes, bounty of the .\uxiliary, helped. E\er\-thing in 
the way of erjuipment, excepting rifle, belt and baxonet. gas mask, slicker 
and combat pack was turned in. 

Our ranks had been depleted by deaths, wounds and illness. While 
officers and platoon sergeants were assembled at headcjuarters for their thrilling 
instructions, a welcome issue of replacements was received from the 4()th 
Division. Most of these new men had been in civilian clothes on the Pacific

The moon was rising when the Second Battalion, under command of 
Captain Eaton, filed out of Le Claon whither it had been withdrawn a few 
nights before into the woods, past the burning house and popping ammunition 
dump ignited by shell fire, through La Chalade, with its gaunt spectral church, 
through Xouveau Cottage, where the last hot meal was due and which was 
not forthcoming, through the winding boyaus and up to the forward lines on 
the Route Marchand. It was to lead the attack followed in close support by 
the First Battalion and then the Third. On our left was the 306th Infantry, 
in column of Battalions also. The Division was to attack in line of regiments. 

.All night the men clung to that steep hillside, or herded into the dugouts 
awaiting the "zero" hour, while from their midst hea\y mortars in the hands 
of the French played havoc with the German wire. Back on the roads

Despite the intensity of the shelling, the ma/e of wire re\ealed no ojien 
avenues and there was difficulty in keei)ing up with our own rolling barrage 
as it swept over the ground before us al the rate of a hundred meters in live 
minutes. Pieces of cloth and llesh sta\ed with the rust\-, clinging barbs: a 
number of men were impaled on si)ikes cle\erl_\' set for that \ery ])urpose. 
With difficulty the leading and sup])orting waves were reformed in line of 
"gangs" or small combat groups before plunging on into the ravines, there 
to become lost or separated from their fellows until after climbing to some 
high point above the sea of fog they might determine again the direction of 
advance by a consultation of map and compass and a consideration of whate\er 
landmarks rose above the clouds. 

Xo concerted resistance was met with until about noon, after three kilo- 
meters of wooded terrain had been covered. There a stubborn machine gun 
resistance and a hea^■y shell fire persuaded the Second Battalion, reinforced 
by companies of the First, to dig in while they spread their ])anels on the

ground to indicate to the Liberty planes overhead the point of farthest ad- 
vance. At last we were to get some assistance from the air! Casualties there 
had been in great numbers from enemy shelling and from lurking snipers; but 
like North American Indians, we continued to stalk our prey from tree to tree. 

With difficulty the scattered units were gathered together from all points 
of the compass. Here and there a little "gang" had had its thrilling experi- 
ence. The scout, whose trying duty it is to advance far in the lead to observe 
or — failing in that — to draw fire from the hidden ambush, had detected a 
skulking sniper or hidden machine gun post. Signalling to his fellows, the 
rifle grenadiers had perhaps planted their missiles within the enemy nest, the 
automatic rifle had been noiselessly carried to a point of vantage, the riflemen 
and bombers had surrounded the group of the enemy and with their fire 
routed him out. 

How these men learn to work together in their own little "gangs" — four 
such units constituting a platoon — and how they sometimes come to love their 
old weapons is suggested by the homely statement of a private in B Company 
who says, "I had my most e.xperience on a Shawshaw gun, and number one 
and two men got wounded. Walter and Jim and I took the gun and held the 
position and got a helper from the same platoon and he got wounded and I 
held the position until I was called back by my sergeant and took up another 
position and held it until we moved out and never got wounded at all and all 
we had to eat is one can of corn willie and two cans of hard tack for two of us. 
But we got along with it and while on the front I used two mussets of ammu- 
nition on the Ciermans and m}- gun got hot and my gun got hit in the stalk 
and split it, but I carried it all along in the Argonne drive where I got gassed 
and had to lend it to some other boys in the platoon." 

The American doughboy is a curious bird. He wanders along most 
casually under shell fire, feeling — if he thinks about anything at all — that he 
stands as good a chance as anyone of not being hit. In the midst of what 
one might ordinarily consider fairly important or distracting duties all his 
thought is for something else. "Oh, Lieutenant, looka here," he says in the 
midst of an attack, pointing out some unusual bit of concrete trench in the 
German lines. He is more absorbed with his guess as to the number of nights 
someone has had to spend there in digging, than the probability of its holding 
a company of lurking Boches. Presently another one off on the right says, 
" Oh, Lieutenant, looka here." There are about seventeen fat Germans stand- 
ing outside a lovely dugout but all eyes are on the dugout instead of on the 
Germans. 

"Keep out of that dugout! Search 'em, cjuick," gasps the Lieutenant, 
fearing treachery — which they do, mindful only of the envied Luger automatic 
pistols they are to acquire. The prisoners are lined up, and one slightly 
wounded American private detailed to take them to the rear. 

"Come along, youse," he says, lighting up a cigarette, and making as if 
to start off at the head of the willing column, with the sling of his rifle over his 
shoulder and chest.

that rifle from your throat so you can use it." 

" Vessir. Giddap, youse Heinies!'" 

" Comeback here," shouts Mr. Officer once aj^'uin. " W'l 
the Hell do you think you're on a ])icnic? Don't turn yi 
back on that column! (iet behind 'em!" 

"Vessir, good idea," and oil he wanders. 

.\ strong outguard having been posted against the p()ssil)ilit\' of counter- 
attack in the night, and reliefs arranged, the remaining men crouch in the 
slime of their miserable funk holes, cursing the cold, clammy drizzle, and shiver- 
ing themselves into iitful sleej) under the meagre protection of an army rain- 
coat, gas mask slung in readiness, helmet covering one ear, rifle loaded, locked 
and in instant readiness. Perhaps it is arranged that two will occup)- the one 
hole — one man constantly on the alert, and so on down the entire line. .\t 
dawn they stretch their aching limbs, a warming lire not to be thought of, 
with no e.xpectation of a hot meal; for there are no roads as yet ojien to the 
pursuing cookers. Nothing in \-iew but the prospect of another day of 
advance. 

On the evening of the 27lli a determined though unsuccessful attack was 
launched against the strong positions on the extreme right of our line, at the 
("arrefour des Meurissons. Into a pocket which the enemy had cleared out 
of the brush two companies unwarily advanced before meeting up with a 
barricade of unexpected chicken wire. Just at that moment, the machine 
guns opened up from three sides. Why those companies were not blown to 
atoms cannot be said. Night put a damper on further attempts, from which 
we desisted until morning, .\fter our third costly attack on this iK)int the 
enemy broke and ran. On the left, the Abri St. Louis fell to the Three 
Hundred and Fifth after four attacks. 

Through the Abri du Crochet and a bit l)e>-ond, the front was extended 
on the night of the 28th, the Regiment finding the brush even more thick 
almost impenetrable. For units to advance in attack formation and to keej) 
I)roper contact with each other was well nigh impossible. The kitchens suc- 
ceeded in moving up by road to the Abri, which was consoling, and carrying 
parties were furnished by those in support. WTiere breathes the good soldier 
who hasn't breathed yet more deeply at the sight of the old chow-engine, or 
whose magnetic hand has not at times i)ilfered a can of jam from the larrler!^ 
Did you ever threaten to raid the kitchen and the defending cooks with hand 
grenades? You certainly caused enough anxiety with your determination to 
congregate in their vicinity. 

Here was an ideal place for Regimental Headcjuarters to o])erate. When 
ad\ance elements first entered these ])alatial German dugouts, there lay beside 
the telephone a partially decoded message in German, forwarded of course 
with all speed to the Divisional Intelligence Department. But the real haul 
consisted of many bottles of "Sclzwasser" and some light wines which Lieu-

tenant Puiic, being an expert on such things, decided to sample lest the un- 
witting Americans stumble into any trick stuff. That was the last seen of 
the wines. Nothing further was heard of them but the gurgle. But the 
Colonel's mess that night boasted of freshly cooked rabbit, fresh vegetables

and head lettuce, all of which had been in tlic course of i)re])aralion lor the 
absent Oerman dignitary's e\'ening meal. 

On the ist our front was extended to the left by companies of the First 
and Third Battalions, taking over ground ])reviously held b}- the 3ot)th, which 
brought them into the high, wooded ground of the Bois de la Naza, and in 
front of a ra\-ine which extended from the west up toward the center of the line. 
G, E and F Companies also went into positions on the left, and H was rushed 
o\-er to the extreme right flank of the Division Sector, to fill in a gap that was 
not closed b>- the 28th Division. The undergrowth in this jjortion of the forest 
was so dense that individuals could in some places with difficulty worm their 
way unobserved to within a few yards of the enemy b}' making extraordinari]\- 
careful use of cover, and by patiently a\-oiding the small clearings or traj^s 
cut in the forest by the Germans, where a false move would be certain to 
call forth enemy fire, point blank. An examination of these positions after 
they had been taken showed that the murderous machine gun fire which halted 
the advance was delivered from a line of gun pits at intervals of not more 
than twenty feet. During the initial advance, our men proceeded in thin 
lines and in combat grouj^s to the \'ery tip of these well hidden positions and 
were there mowed down. 

That troops could subsecjuentl)- push up to within a \er\- few }ards of 
the German gunners without detection — and likewise without being able 
actually to see the enemy — seems remarkable; and yet, the extreme right 
com{)any actually dug for protection while a searching machine gun fire 
sprayed through the brush, at a range of only thirty yards. It was accom-

THE ARGOXNE 155 

Both sides maintained an almost constant rifle and mac hini' gun tire, 
although for the most part our men failed to appreciate the demorah'zing 
effects of a grazing fire, taught as they were to aim at definite targets. This 
the enemy seemed to estimate of great \ahie, for our positions were swept b}- 
an almost constant fire. It can easily be understood how diflicult it was to 
j)romulgate orders for subsequent oi)erations, or to distribute fotxi. To pro- 
vide drinking water, one man would painstakingly crawl from one hole to 
another collecting on a stick a dozen or so canteens which he would l)ear to 
some point in rear. Movement or noise of any kind seemed to draw forth a 
raking fire of greater intensity than usual. 

Naturally, the runners led a precarious existence. The right companx 
had made an effort to swing forward the far extremity of its line, ])i\oting on 
the left. The air was blue with bullets. In the midst of all the hullaballoo 
a runner squirmed forward to the compan\' commander who at that momi-nt 
lay on his stomach, his gas mask slung o\er his back instead of his chest, that 
he might place himself just those three inches nearer the ground. Surely 
it must be a message of great tactical importance demanding that a soldier 
jeopardize his life to effect its prom]^t delivery! Breathless, wounded in the 
canteen, the brave lad handed over the vital message which ran like this: 
" Vou will send at once to Battalion Headcjuarters a man who will be detailed 
to attend a School for the Care and Handling of Army Asses." 

Constant patrolling was necessary in order to maintain the closest sort 
of contact, to learn at once not only of any offensive operation on the enemys' 
part, but also of any withdrawal or maneux'ering of their troops. Patrols of 
another nature were necessary, too- searching for those who failed to return. 
An adventure which was t\'pical of many that happened in the Bois de la Naza 
was that of Sergeants Tompkins and Collins, Corporal Neitziet and Private 
Arkman of L Company who crawled forward to within ten yards of the enemy 
guns, weathered the fire and the "potato-masher" hand grenades thrown in 
their direction, and carried to safet>- three wounded comrades who had been 
ambushed during an attempted advance. They were awarded the Distin- 
guished Service Cross. 

"We took Chaplain Johnson out on patrol," writes the F Compan}- scribe, 
"looking for snipers. One of the men salvaged a German rifle and while 
looking it over almost blew off the Chaplain's head. We got no snipers that 
time, but did get a bunch of blankets which the boys were glad to have. The 
Chaplain was game, and was always in the thick of it, comforting the wounded, 
and seeing to it that the dead got as decent a burial as possible." Both of the 
chaplains had plenty of work to do and contributed greatly to the maintenance 
of morale, during those trying days. We have seen funerals on the battle- 
field; we have seen funerals in French towns, magnificent with trai)pings, 
j)omp and professional mourners. Yet there was never one more impressive 
than that of Private ^Morgan of H Company, killed bj- the accidental exjilosion 
of hand grenades which he carried. In the first light of a chill October morning

bloody attack of Oct. 5th in the Bois de la Naza took place, preceded by a barrage by twelve 
3-in. and four 4-in. Stokes mortars throwing thermite and concentrated on a front of 200 
yards. The battalion went through the gap thus made on either side of the road, but was held 
up by heavy machine gun fire and gained only an average of ISO yards. The Germans pulled 
out that night before any further attacks were made. The severity of this bombardment 
,ind attack may well have been the cause of thu Germans' hasty retirement from this region. 



a group of his comrades gathered "round as the poor boy's body was interred, 
while his Corporal extemporaneously uttered a homely, heartfelt prayer. 

For the better part of four days, we strove against these positions. 
Artillery could not be used to advantage because of the proximity of our lines 
to those of the enemy and the likelihood of short bursts in the tree-tops. 
■'The American Army never retreats," and those higher up would not consider 
for a moment withdrawing trooi)s while a sudden barrage might be laid down. 
We prayed for that artiller)-, but got precious little such assistance. Rifle 
grenades fouled in the trees. Stokes mortars were brought into play, and 
captured German " grenatenwerfer " w^ere used by the Mortar Platoon with 
damaging effect on the enemy. But, in order to register accurately, it was 
necessary for an observer to be on the spot — not thirty, nor fifty, nor a hundred 
>ards back, but within a very few yards of where the shells were calculated 
to land. On October 3d, such a barrage of Stokes mortars was attempted. 
The German fire was hea\y and incessant. Sergeant Sustick of L Company 
\olunteered to crawl forward to observe the effects of our fire. He therefore 
came not only under the fire of the enemy, but was virtually within our own 
mortar barrage. For that he, too, was decorated. 

The 2d of October brought forth a succession of bloody attacks on various 
parts of the line. Those in higher command could not or would not appreciate

had removed Cajjtain Eaton because 
his men were huddled into a ravine,

injustice to a very able leader and to 
the jjoor devils who had been craw 1-

a week, seeing their comrades droj)-

were so badly wounded that they could not eventuall\ rejoni Here again, 
the Sanitary Detachment did heroic work under hre. At seven o'clock the 
next morning the last three men were trundled off in a brave little P^ord 
ambulance, and the General, Old War Horse that he is, sat down in his head- 
quarters, mopped his brow and is reported to have said, "Well, anyone who 
says he likes war is either a damn fool or a damn liar." 

An account of the attack by an F Company boy reads: "At 3.30 we lined 
up our gangs and started over that most terrible hill. We were at once under 
direct machine gun fire, the worst yet, and it seemed as if the air was so full 
of bullets that a man could not move without being hit. A man standing 
upright would have been riddled from head to foot. That's what happened 
to Lieutenant Gardner, leading E Company. We were approaching the crest 
of Suicide Hill, advancing very slowly on our bellies. The only order that 
could be heard was 'Forward,' and Company F \vas game. It was awful. 
The poor boys were getting slaughtered as fast as sheep could go up a plank. 
No one could ever describe the horror of it. The screams of the wounded 
were terrible, but we stuck to it. We could not see a Boche; once in a while 
one would stick his head out of his machine gun emplacement only to his 
sorrow. We were supposed to go over with a rifle grenade barrage; but we 
fired off all we had and the eft'ect was too weak. What we really wanted was 
a violent artillen,' barrage but never did they throw a shell. Our commander, 
Lieutenant Hever, got hit in the lung, and that left us without any officers; 
it was every man for himself. The Boches made our company look like a 
squad; all that was left was a handful of men."

He's younger than the most of us — far younger than the "To])," 
And, bein' young, he's full of pep and keeps us on the hoji; 
He hasn't been in long enough to sour on the game; 
He's tickled as a kid with it — that's why we bless his name. 

He puts us through all sorts of stunts to hven up the drill, 

He laughs when he turns corners sharp and takes a mudd_\- spill. 

It's up and in it all the time — he never seems to tire. 

And doesn't know what ducking means in face of Fritz's fire! 

He always calls us "fellows" — never pulls the line "My men"; 
He likes to think he's one of us; and back in billets, when 
He has to make inspections, he'll sit down and chin a while, 
.And as to all that "Yes Sir" stuff, "Oh, can itl" That's his style. 

At shows he plays his uke for us, and sings his college glees, 

And if there's a piano, wow! He sure can pound the keys! 

On hikes he always starts a song, or sends along a laugh —

To be dragged out of a hell-hole, considerably the worse for wear, cold, 
muddy and hungrj-, and back into a sheltering ravine out of reach of the 
German machine guns, though not yet beyond shell fire, was great. After the 
first shave in ten days and a night's sleep under a stray piece of corrugated 
iron, what ho! — one is a man again. But some fared better even than that. 
"On the reverse slopes of these hills," quoting from the 77th Division History, 
"huge deep dugouts had been constructed — one of the famous rest areas of 
the German armies, where battle-worn and weary Boches were taken to fatten 
up and recover morale amidst amazing comforts and luxuries. On the heights 
above these dugouts, more pretentious abodes had been built for officers and 
non-commissioned officers. These were of concrete, with logs and concrete 
roofing, twenty feet in depth, and were ornamented to resemble Swiss chalets 
and Black Forest hunting lodges with peaked roofs and exterior fresco work 
of burnt oak. Within were oak wainscoted chambers, fitted with electric 
lights and running water, supplied from the power house in the valley below. 
Benches and tables in rustic solid oak were supplemented by plush arm-chairs 
and hair mattresses to cater to the comforts of weary warriors. Adjoining 
"Waldhaus Martha" was the bowling alley with the open-air restaurant and 
beer garden built above it, where once sat the onlookers, quaffing their beer, 
perhaps, and cheering the bowlers. Down in the ravine where the brook ran 
was the great concrete swimming pool, and here, also, were found spacious 
shower baths supplied with hot water by modern boilers and concrete fur- 
naces." These baths, you can bet, were put to immediate use.

The advance over the next six kilometers by the remainder of the Brigade 
was opposed only by shell fire. On the night of the 9th, it was announced 
that La Besogne had been taken; but when the entire Brigade, led b\- the 
306th, took up the advance the next morning in column of scjuads, with Berlin 
as the objective, they found that a body of French had cut across the Division 
sector from the left and lay at some distance in the rear of the tiny hamlet 
dignified by such a beautiful name. 

Some historian, with a mania for painful detail, will some day point out 
with glee that for a few moments that morning the 77th was an attacking 
Division which had no front; for the French above referred to were joined 
up on their right with a battahon which had strayed beyond the limits of the 
82d Division's sector. We hereb}- take the Avind out of his sails. 

The three battalions of the 306th having taken position to the front and 
west of Besogne, the First Battalion of the Three Hundred and Fifth became 
the attacking unit of the Brigade. It did a splendid piece of work that after- 
noon. The shelling had become very heavy. The attacking battalion of the

rest of its outfit, was literally cut to pieces and digging in. Gathering up

to the Regiment just in time to be put in command of C Company and to

two kilometers of open ground, under the full observation and hea\y shell fire

From: Commanding General, 1st Army Corps. 
To: Commanding General, 77th Division. 
Subject: Commendation. 

1. The Coq:)S Commander directs me to inform you that he feels once 
more during the present operations called upon to e.xpress his gratification 
and appreciation of the work of the 77th Division. 

2. This Division has been in the line constant!}- since the night of the 
25th of September under circumstances at least as difficult as those which 
have confronted any other Division of the First Army. 

3. In spite of these conditions your command has pushed steadily for- 
ward on a line with the foremost and today, after eighteen days of constant 
fighting is still ready to respond to any demand made upon it. 

4. The CoqDS Commander is proud indeed of such a unit as yours and 
congratulates you on such a command.

The 7 7th DiA'ision had cleaned out the Argonne Forest, but they had to 
go on. 

The 14th was an eventful day and productive of a lasting difference of 
opinion. After it had weathered a night of heavy shell fire, an early morning 
barrage of great intensity and a counter attack, H Company certainly felt as 
if it had taken the town of St. Juvin and held it against vigorous opposition. 
However, credit for its capture has, in the Division History, officially gone to 
H Company of the 306th Infantry, and very little has been said of the part

{)laved therein by the Three Hundred and Tifth, whirh ixpericmed all the 
thrills of approaching an enemy tnwn under shell lire, mojipin^ it up, liastily 
entrenching to defend it, sending hack i)risoners, and feeling \ery luiu h alone 
in it during all the night of the 14th. 

On that afternoon, the Second Battalion had been on the high ground 
behind Marcq in su])iK)rt of the MXAh, which was to cross the river and take 
St. Juvin. General ^^'illennlyc•r in person had suddenl\' ordered Captain 
Dodge to lead his company l)y trails through the brush down to the River 
Aire, to advance and enter the town, followed by the rest of the battalion. 
Major Bennet, the Brigade Adjutant, guided the company north along the 
railroad to a foot bridge, which they crossed, single file, into the o]H'n meadows 
two kilometers southeast of the town. It was beautiful to see the men turn 
left, on command, and proceed north in line of gangs under a hea\ \- shell lire, 
which the Boche with his ])erfect observation inslantl\- ojK'ned up, and despite 
casualties to maintain their attack formation. 

Into a sheltering ditch they llop])ed momentarily for breath. Xo nioxing 
troops had been seen to their front (luring this part of their ad\ance. .\11 set 
for a hand-to-hand scrap, lhe_\- were suq:)rised therefore to encounter at the 
bridge on the eastern limits of the town, which they entered at ii\e-thirty, 
a number of German ]:)risoners in the hands of American troo])s, men of the 
.•!()6lh who had succeecled in accomi)lishing an enveloi)ing moxement to the 
ri'dit, in the sector of the S2d Division. The shelling had ceased; it was e\i-

denl that the Boches were loath to bombard the great numbers of their own 
troops who were still there. 

Troops of the other regiment, it was said, were in the eastern edge of the 
town. Accordingly, H Company of the Three Hundred and Fifth divided into 
groups, proceeding through the streets of the center and western half, mop- 
ping up the cellars, clear to the northern limits. While engaged in this thrilling 
work, no other American troops were encountered, unless one excepts the 
drunken engineer whose helmet and gas mask were gone, whose only equip- 
ment was a Colt .45 stuck in the waistband of his breeches, and who wept, 
while pointing out the choicest wine cellars, because he hadn't taken any pris- 
oners. They had all insisted upon running away from him, he said. It was 
after the sobering barrage which shortly occurred that he confessed to having 
found some pretty good stuff back in Marcq, and that after the bridge on 
which he had been working was completed, he had sauntered forward into a 
town then completely dominated by the enemy, to see what the wine cellars 
there had to offer. 

In the region of the church, and north of it, se\eral groups of unresisting 
prisoners were taken, including three majors, one captain, one lieutenant, 
several non-coms, and about eighty men who were grouped with a large 
number turned over to us at the entrance to the town by the 306th, and sent 
to the rear in charge of one officer and a squad. There was no hand-to-hand 
fighting. The German soldiers had been told by their officers that an armis- 
tice would be in effect the next day, and were only too happy to fall into a

column of squads and later, to serve as litter bearers — if someone would put 
in a good word for them. 

None of the equipment taken from them could be listed. Prized tro])hies 
which the bo}.-s would now give a great deal for were hurriedl\- tlumped into 
a heap, while the platoons sought to assemble and dig in on Hill 182, about 
seventy-five yards north of the town, just as night fell. The company num- 
bered about sixty effectives, plus two guns of the 326th Machine Gun Ccmi- 
pany, 82d Division, which came up at nightfall and took position on our left. 
A patrol to the northwest on the Chamjiigneulle road scared u]) some (rermans 
who fled. Outpost No. 1 on Hill 182 located by nine-thirty at a considerable 
distance from its right, and slightly to the front, another small detachment 
of the 326th Machine Gun Compan\-. 

The enemy shells commenced to land upon our positions at about nine 
o'clock and continued to do so practically without cessation all through the 
night. Digging was difficult because of flying shell splinters; and it seemed 
as if the noise of pick and shovel brought a desulton,- rifle fire from the right 
front, bullets repeatedly grazing the parapets — which seriously disputes the 
presence of friendly troops on that quarter. In fact, H Compan}- felt utterly 
alone. Sergeant Leopold, sent to the rear to give information in detail as to 
the situation and to ask that comjjanies be disposed to defend the right and 
left, found no one in town, the walls of which by that time were rocking, and 
was interrupted in the carrying out of his mission by having to gather uj) 
single-handed, about forty more prisoners who at that inconvenient moment 
insisted upon shrieking "Kamarad!" 

At about ten o'clock, an officer of the 306th reached Captain Dodge and 
his executive lieutenant to ask about our dispositions and what was on the left. 
It was pointed out to the visitor that his company had not advanced to its 
objective; that there was nothing on our left. He was asked if possible to 
move up from the St. Juvin-St. Georges Road in order to help out in case of 
trouble. At about five o'clock in the morning it appeared that he was taking 
up position in old German trenches on Hill 182, on our right front, out of which 
those troops were shelled an hour or so later by the most intense barrage our 
men had ever experienced. The (iermans loosed everything they had, finishing 
up with a rain of machine gun bullets and a feeble counter attack which was 
repelled. It cannot be said that there was any desperate fighting in and about 
St. Juvin although not a man was there who does not earnestly pray that he 
will never again have to live through such a nerv^e-wracking experience as that 
shell fire. This operation elicited the following commendation from General 
Alexander:

difficult night march was necessar>' to place 153d Brigade in proper position 
to attack. This was done, the attack launched and the objective gained. In 
the course of the operations a large number of prisoners, including officers of 
superior rank, were taken by the 153d Brigade. 

2. This success, coming as it does, in the course of a campaign which 
has already lasted eighteen days, made under circumstances which have tested 
to the limit the courage and endurance of the officers and men, demonstrates 
once more the indomitable spirit and courage of the officers and men of this 
division. 

3. The Division Commander, reiterating the commendation already 
twice made of the work of this organization by the Corj^s Commander, feels 
that it is indeed an honor to command such troops.

The remainder of the Battalions then got their nerves severely wracked. 
From a ditch southeast of town it was difficult enough for Regimental Head- 
quarters to function, the place littered with the wounded, dying and dead, 
shells dropping all about from time to time. But it was even more difficult 
for troops to maneuver about the marshes and swamps of the Aire river-bed 
in which men were plastered from head to foot and their ec}uipment irretriev- 
ably lost, buried under showers of black mud tossed skyward by the crumping 
"210's." Extending its front to the west, toward nightfall, along the Grand- 
Pre road was another ghastly performance, rendered not a whit more delectable 
by the hea\y rain which fell and which continued to fall during the entire 
night. The troops of the Third Battalion lay in just as uncomfortable a 
position on the hills to the east of the town. 

Yet, this was one of the most happily expectant moments of our lives. 
The Division was to be relieved by the 78th! What did it matter if the rain 
came down in torrents? There was a rest a-coming. WTiat did it matter if 
the — say, was there anyone there so utterly miserable that he didn't feel sorr\- 
for the poor old 78th as it crawled into those hopeless, inadequate positions 
beyond St. Juvin? Didn't you feel like apologizing when you offered that 
slimy funk hole along the roadside to the clean, well-fed youth who came to 



T H E A R G O N X E 



take it over! Didn't you beat it, though, back through the town in the early 
morning light, heedless of the rain, past that shambles at the entrance to St. 
Juvin, past all the dead men sitting upright in funk holes along the left-hand 
side of the road, past the wire and the huts and meagre uprootings all along 
that crest, past the old dressing station and the headquarters at the ditch 
where you dropped off a few more men just then wounded during that \ery 
relief? It had been worth living through all the false rumors of relief just to 
realize the joy of that moment. After marching, marching, man hing all day 
through sloppy mud that was ankle-deep, you approached tlie old (ierman 
rest camp at Bouzon and Sachsenhain, far in the rear, where you would hear, 
thank God, only the occasional straying shell and pray that the bombing 
planes wouldn't come over too often. 

A lieutenant wrote: "I stood at the foot of the trail leading into Cam]) 
de Bouzon watching the stream of faces that ])assed— white, weary faces which 
told more eloquently than words of the utter fatigue, the ner\e-shallering 
strain, the loss of good comrades, the rains and the cold and the hunger of 
twenty-one days in the fighting^of twenty-four days in the line— of twenty- 
two kilos advance. Ragged, mud-caked, unshaven outcasts they seemed, 
scarcely able to plant one foot in front of the other, stumbling down the trail, 
eyes staring vacantly — hungry for sleep; bodies as hungr\- for shelter, warmth, 
baths and clean clothes as for hot food." They crawled into huts, or under

CHArTER \in 
THE MEl'SE 

" Thry didift think urd do it, Intl ur did." 

WE heard ihc boastful Ari^^oiuic Players mv^ it in thr woods at Camp 
de Bouzon, and remarked nastily that we'd rather ha\e fought their 
kind of war. Or was it then too early for them to ha\e composed and 
dedicated to General Robert Alexander that modest ditty? Xo doubt at all 
that "when Jerr\- fell in the Argonne Wood," bot/i hv and we "got merry 
Hell and got it doggone good!" We Imd gone the route, and now felt sure 
"the big town" that was never reached would finally materialize. 

There was wide-open talk of an armistice. Everyone thought he had 
fought his last fight, that in the general order of things, before our depleted 
ranks could get into the line again, either the war would be over or the opposing 
armies would have dug in for the winter. It was growing too cold and wet 
for further operations; the men couldn't live through many more nights in 
the o])en. Even the daily drill in attack formation, the reception of replace- 
ments and the reorganization of combat "gangs," the incessant practice with 
grenades, with German "potato-mashers," with pistol, ritle and automatic and 
with captured German machine guns could not make all the clouds look a 
dark gray. The old Band was a-workin' o\ertime. The first leaves were 
authorized but 

Nobody got 'em. 

Although the French were of the opinion that the war was over as a 
result of the October campaigns. General Pershing rightly 'lowed as how the 
American Army was only just beginning to feel its oats. The French could 
call a halt if they wanted to; he was going on alone to knock the living day- 
lights out o' Germany and really finish the job. And the Commander in Chief 
seemed to feel that the 77th Division ought to be in at the finish. 

There was no bloodthirsty roar of eager approval when General Alexander 
massed the officers and non-coms, below the rostrum at Bouzon. Though we 
would like to have posterity think us a bunch of fire-eaters, with insatiable 
appetites for more and bigger conflagrations, we cannot truthfully den>' that 
gloom was abroad. However, if the General wanted to "smash the hinges," 
the 77th Division and the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry could still put 
weight behind its sledge-hammer. 

The sun shone beautifully on the 30th of October, making the overcoat 
seem a useless addition to the combat pack as the Regiment hiked north; but 
that was about the last good effort he put forth until the following spring. 
He gave up the fight, completely. The bulk of the Regiment lay cjuartered 
that night in IMartincourt Farm, south of St. Juvin and the River Aire, daring 
the Boche to wipe them out completely with his artillery, which he could ha\'e

from units of the 78th and <S2d ]Jivisions. On the night of the ,ilst, the Second 
Battalion, again under Captain I^aton who had rehncjuished command just 
prior to the rehef of the 16th, took over from the 7<sth !)i\ision the very 
positions turned over to them on the night of the 15lh! I'lial the lines had 
not been advanced was a blow, indeed. 

Again, the breathless awaiting of the " zero '" hour- lixe-thirty, this time — 
much as on the never-to-be-forgotten September 26th. Again, an earth- 
rocking barrage directed against the known points of enemy resistance. A 
colored engineer sweating on the roads behind St. Juvin found himself close 
beside the deafening roar of a heavy battery. He surely had pep and en- 
thusiasm; for ever\' time one of the "big boys" shattered the night air with 
an ear-splitting roar he would leap off the ground, crack his heels together, 
nigger-fashion, and shout, "\\lioo{)ee! Whoopee! Misto Kaiser. COUNT 
YO' MEXI" 

He certainly would have hated to be on the other end of that noise; yet 
it wasn't loud enough. For when the Di\ision started just before daylight 
of the first, the Three Hundred and Fifth in the lead encountered a tremen- 
dously strong resistance, the Third Battalion on the right suffering about a 
hundred and thirty casualties from a cross fire directed upon them from posi- 
tions in the neighboring sector east of the Ravin aux Pierres and from the 
Moulin Mohin on their front -the Second Battalion reduced to about half of 
its morning strength by a scorching fire, both shell and machine gun, poured 
down ui)on their heads from the high ground at Champigneulle. Late in the 
afternoon. Captain Eaton was severely wounded and his command ne.xt day

passed to Captain Tiebout. The enemy trenches to the south of this town 
continued to be strongly held until morning. 

Yet, by three o'clock that first afternoon, the Third Battalion had gained 
its designated "intermediate" objective and withstood successfully between

thai hour and hw P. M. ihwv massed counter attacks, which lhe_\- teU us 
were thriUing enough. That only the uitermediate objective of the first (ia>-'s 
attack was reached may be fairly laid to the fact that our Regiment had to 
advance along the main north and south road and, as was natural, that the 
enemy had put there his strongest resistance. 

But with the daylight of November 2d, it was found that the bird had 
flown. For a couple of hours, the advance was held up while our cannon 
playfully threw into Champignculle all their suq^lus ammunition left over 
from the day before — the time when it had been really needed. Only here 
and there was found and potted a hapless Boche who hadn't been al)le to 
sprint fast enough on the way through \'erpel to Thenorgues 
where the Regiment dug a defensive position in a pouring rain 
— not so much facing the north as the west; for the 78th was 
far in the rear, leaving our llank exposed. There, however, 
G Company would have had their hrst hot coffee had 
not some poor, witless, bone-headed boob tipped o\er 
the marmite can! Oooh! He was ]ioiuilar. 

Yet one need really never dcsjiair, either in camp 
or on the battle-field, when men sa\-, "When do we 
eat?" for it is quasi-humorous and really means, "We'd 
be tremendously happy boys if the chow were to be ^^ 
handed out this minute." Even when men are des-W" 
perately hungrj-, it betrays a persistent good humor, patience, \itality 
and a tenacity of purjiose. It is .so with the struggling infantryman

pushing on through the forest in the face of enemy machine guns, or when 
hastily digging a funk hole, weathering shell fire, cursing the rain and the mud 
or bailing out a trench. It is so with the wear}- doughboy coming back from a 
relief, or with the machine gunner bent beneath the ungodly weight of a tripod, 
stumbling over a drunken duck-board, groping for his file leader in the ap- 
palling darkness, slipping and sliding on narrow forest paths. It is so when 
he falls at last comparatively safe into a ravine, though the first of his four 
days of promised rest has been consumed in marching from the lines to the back 
areas through almost impassable mud; though the second day of the "rest" be 
spoiled by having to move in the rain from Camp de Bouzon over the hills to 
Camp Sachsenhain; though the third day be ruined by having to tramp — again 
in the rain and overwhelming mud — clear back to Yarennes for a cjuestionably 
efficient bath ; though the socks so lovingly put together by the Auxiliary are 
slow in arriving, and the letters from home are not promptly delivered. Just at 
the point where a Bolshevik inight la}- down his arms and refuse to pla\- any 
more a crisis is averted by the simple words, "Hey, when do we eat?" 

The foot race was resumed, the other Brigade leading the way through 
Buzancy, Bar and Harricourt. The towns flew by so fast that the panting 
doughboys howled for rest, stopping not even long enough really to enjoy a 
chunk of bully beef and half a succulent cabbage snatched in passing from 
the Franco-German war gardens. Ever test the refreshing efJects of raw cab- 
bage leaf? Nibble a piece of it while hastening to the office some morning;

t t X- 



A HISTORY OF THE ,U)5th INFANTRY 




"Alexander's Rag-Time Band" was on its last legs. The rapid advance 
over rough ground was little more than a route-march in attack formation, 
with little food, little rest and spasmodic bursts of intense shell fire. A touch 
of gas flung over the first day was gradually claiming its victims; men were 
dropping from sheer exhaustion, bronchitis and disappointment. Units had 
great difficulty in keeping contact, while runners cursed the day they were 
born, and signal men romped all o\er the place in an effort to tie up the 
various elements fore and aft with wire. Colonel Lewis Morey, w'ho prior to 
the attack had taken over command of the Regiment when our good old 
Colonel Smedberg was promoted to the rank of Brigadier-General, was gen- 
erally with the front line troops, making his P. C. in a shell hole, a battered 
house or his motor car — switching the lights on momentarily, perhaps, by 
which to read a map, then opening the throttle wide to escape the sudden 
flock of shells seeking to perch on the tip of the radiator. 

In Fontenoy and St. Pierremont, there was time for a breathing spell, 
while the 154th Brigade took up the forward line — though men of the Second 
Battalion, who huddled into a tremendous railroad cut through which the 
3()8th Infantry passed in single file all during the day of the 4th, will tell you 
that the shelling which enemy observers of the movement directed into their 
snug retreat was no joke. They buried good comrades there, and wondered 
how shells could land upon the very rails and not kill off all the men who 
flopped in the adjacent ditches. 

More shelling overtook the long columns of the Third and Second Bat- 
talions as they snaked northward, all day long, in single file through the Bois

Chaplain J(ihnson paints a vivid picture of that night at Le Cendriere: 

"In the tirst arduous laps of the march, a sturdy private produced a 
burlap bag out of which he rolled three two-pound cans of beef, a like number 
of jam, two cans of sardines, some condensed milk, considerable prunes— and 
was almost murdered for his great wealth. He invariably staggered under 
such a load of food that the observant eye was confounded. Thanks to him 
and his peculiarities many weary, hungry men had often tasted food when 
thev could reasonably have expected none — and this hap])ened with a fre- 
quency which begot expectancy. 

"To the superficial observer, this bounty should seem to have depleted 
his store but to one knowing him, it was plain, on close inspection, that in 
addition to the complete equipment of the soldier, there hung from one 
shoulder a sack tied in the middle with bulging ends; from the other a two- 
quart German can; and through the tight lacings of his haversack peeped a 
bright can or two. 

"The day was well nigh spent and wrapped in drizzling rain. The trail 
was narrow, sUppery and interminable in its windings. Angry tree trunks 
seemed unrelenting in their opposition; saplings struck out in smart revenge 
for one's brushing them. FeUed trees must be scrambled over in the trj'ing 
darkness which came on quickly. But the wean,- column struggled through 
the wretched way. finally emerging upon an open road. In a veritable down- 
pour the troops dug meagre protection from the incessant shelling, in the 
sodden banks.

farm was in total darkness except for one small room crowded with men and 
officers, some of whom were lying asleep, others standing or sitting as best 
they could, a few bending over the tattered battle maps upon a table. 

"Suddenly there spread through ever>' building in the place the words,

By some miracle of mules and persuasion the cookers had come up over 
badly mined and muddy roads to a point behind La Besace, to which point 
some were fortunate enough to be allowed to repair at dawn — in the unceasing 
downpour. Then through La Besace which was a sea of mud, there finding 
the liberated civilians grouped ecstatically in the streets, the Third Battalion 
followed by the rest of the Regiment took up the advance again and plunged 
sharply eastward into dense woods, m the direction of the Meuse. On the 
6th their advance was continued, now supported by the First Battalion which 
had been under command of INIajor Frank Sloane since the 1st. Would the 
Boche never make a stand? Even a fight would have saved us that everlasting 
hike! The Commander of the First Army Corps evidently appreciated the 
rapidity of the advance :

gratitude for the untiring and successful efforts made b}- all ollicers and men 
of this Division, especially since this Division alone remains in the line of 
those present at the beginning of the general operation November 1st. In 
the face of the greatest difficulties caused by continuous rains, enemy demoli- 
tions, and active resistance, this Division has pushed forward magnificently, 
overcoming all obstacles met in our advance. It is no exaggeration to say 
that this Division has taken more ground and material from the enemy since 
September 26th than any other Division in the American Army, and j)robably 
more than any other Division in any allied Army in this period. Without 
the most strenuous exertions and the most loyal co-operations on the part of 
the entire Division — officers and men^ the results secured would have been 
impossible.

the 506th S. S. U. Section.

It was expected that troops of the Third Battalion could do no more by 
the night of the 6th than to occupy the heights west of the INIeuse, sending 
patrols through Autrecourt and to the river. But the entire L Company, 
willing to undertake 'most anything in their quest of food, was joyously 
received by the inhabitants of Autrecourt that night, and it may have been 
due to its great capacities that these civilians had to be rationed immediately 
after the 11th by the Americans. K Company sent a platoon into Mouzcn 
and to Villers-devant-Mouzon. 

The remainder of the Regiment pulled into the former town, footsore and 
weary on the afternoon of the 7th, expecting to go on, for so read the orders. 
Engineers at \'illers were having the Devil's own time erecting a bridge, under 
machine gun fire and shelling of ever-increasing intensity, to oppose which, 
K Company sent two platoons across, holding them there until nightfall. The 
First Battalion was rushed to the scene to cover the building o])erations, while 
other elements scouted the towns for raft and bridge building materials.

\'illers became a hell-hole, with its constant shelling, the deadly machine

sadly depleted, succeeded in getting two platoons across, relieved the tired

troops of K and routed out oncm}- guns, sullering terribly the while. On the 
next day it was considered a needless sacrifice to hold this bridge head, the 
troops being withdrawn some to the heights and others into shelter in the 
towns, where only occasional shelling took place as though forbidden ])\ some 
previous arrangement with the inhabitants, and where there was food. 

The night of the "Hh found troops of the Second Battalion struggling 
through the woods far to the left, taking over positions of the 307th, the First 
maintaining its occupanc\- of the right front. I-'or the Division was extending 
its front to the north and west to a point almost within sight of Sedan. There 
were rumors of relief — there had been, constantly; it was certainly due. 

There would have been gnashing of teeth could the plodding doughbo\-s, 
then almost ready to w^eep from exhaustion and exposure, ha\e known that 
an order was already started on its way (fortunately killed) for the 77th to 
take over the positions on the extreme left where the 42d had in the last few 
days relieved the 78th. As it was, they had to go through the formalit}- of 
maintaining a strong outpost line, patrolling the wide front, though their eves 
had taken on a stupid stare. " Stay with it, boys. The rations will be coming 
along in cjuantity soon. But in the meantime, feed on this, drawing whatever 
consolation vou can from the last three lines of the second paragraph:"

1. The following General Order of the 1st Arm}- is published for the 
information of all concerned: 

"After constant fighting for over one month, the 1st American Armv 
launched an attack against the German Army which had established itself for 
determined resistance. In five days it had penetrated 25 kilometers and had 
driven the enemy in retreat before it. Its brilliant success, in connection 
with the 4th French Army on its left, forced the Germans to retreat on a 
broad front. This Army has fought and marched and endured the rigors of 
campaign with the most superb indift'erence to everything except the deter- 
mination to go forward and im]>rint upon the enemy the mark of its courage 
and resolutions. 

"All arms and services of those in advance wht) smashed the way, inclu- 
ding those in the air who rendered aggressive and meritorious ser\ice, and 
those in the rear who, b>- their untiring industry made possible the continued 
advance, are worthy of the highest praise and gratitude of their admiring 
country. The Army Commander is proud of such an army; he thanks it for

What greater success could lie before anyone at this point than to find a 
roof, to build a fire, and lie almost on top of it? The world is dark at five 
o'clock. At ten you and your bunkies take turns rubbing each other to keep 
warm. You cover your head with the blanket so as not to waste the warmth 
expelled from your lungs; enough fresh air can get through the pores of that 
blanket anyhow. The sentr}- you are due to relieve awakens you at dawn. 
The frost is on the pumpkin — er, that is, it would be, if there were any pump- 
kin. But if there had been any wild pumpkin roaming about loose, it would 
have been caught and eaten raw, long since. Under the lee of the steep hill- 
sides which defilade this position from intermittent artillery fire, the grass is 
pure white. And so are the long ravines and the steep slopes leading down 
into the river mists and over to the enemy Hnes at Ablimont — where Lieutenant 
MacDowell and Sergeant Earth have been prowling about, three kilos deep 
into the enemy system, gaining information at the risk of their lives; Barth,

appears in the "icebox" at the back of the book, along with a host of otlier 
deserving recommendations. 

For the moment, there is peaceful silence, just as if the war were over — 
only the hushed voices of half-frozen men. I'Or the most i)art, it is a silence 
of utter e.xhaustion. Occasionally, the short little words, "When do we eat?" 

Those last days were terribly hard. We had never had any play days, no 
real rest or recreation — under shell lire and worse practically since June 2()th. 
Time and again it had been rumored and actually announced by comi)etent 
authority that NOW the 77th was to get a rest! But ahva>s, there had been 
just one more pressing job for the 77th to do. 

Over four months in the line! An ad\ance of thirty-se\eii kilometers 
since November 1st. An advance of tifty-nine kilometers since September 
26th, under tire all the way! The men were fatigued when they began their 
advance of November. Losses had been hea\'y, particularly on that first day. 
Jerry had pulled out so fast that wean,' troops could not catch him. The 
frightfully torn condition of the ground, the abandoned ordnance, limbers and 
wagons and the slain horses, from which half starved civilians had hastily cut 
the steaks, attested the murderous work of our long-range and lighter artiller\- 
which had ])revented the Boche from re-setting his pieces into jiosition, and 
which had made such a rapid advance possible. 

That, and sheer grit. The troops had far (>utstri])pe(l the suppl\- trains. 
One of the chiefest difficulties of the Argonne-Meuse Offensixe had been the 
inadecjuacy of the roads. What there were had been bombed and mined to 
f)ieces by the retreating Boches. Of course, it would ha\e been different

Paragraph No. 2 it went on to say that 
the 77thDivision was thereby transferred 
to the Fifth Army Corps! But to offset

On the night of the 10th, the Second Battalion's total of a hundred and 
fifty-two effective men were outposting the Meuse from Villers to the Pont 
de Garde. The 'phone jangled nervously; G Comi)an}' was ordered out as a 
combat patrol over the river at Villers, and the scout officer with his crew and 
a reel of wire in the hands of the signal men ran a phone over the bridge to 
the old mill on the German side. The Battalion was in readiness to cross the 
river for an attack at any minute. Then, at midnight, a mysterious call from 
headquarters, not to act upon the information sought and to withdraw the 
]Kitrols! 

At dawn. Battalion Headquarters lay shivering in its funk-hole. Some- 
where under the Adjutant's right shoulder blade the telephone rang again. 
It must have been a tremendous message; for not until the Staff had heard 
it repeated a number of times did its full import sink into his cranium; where- 
upon he (the Staff), his telephone, his entire equipment and the roof of the 
bi\-vy fell with an ecstatic crash upon the Battalion Commander's neck.

The Armistice was a reality I There never was such a celebration as the 
one which ensued. No. There was very little noise. There were no horns 
to blow, no cow-bells to ring, no strangers to pound on the back, no jobs to 
cjuit, no holiday. All such nonsense is for silly, civilized people who live in 
houses and work when not celebrating. The few men who were still in their 
holes — one could never keep the American doughboy under co\er where he 
belonged — got out and stretched; stretched the kinks out of their rheumatic 
limbs. 

But wait! It was not yet eleven, and there was to be no forward move- 
ment of troops after that hour. Under cover of the mist, Martin snaked his 
telephone back to the mill, crossing the rickety bridge at ten-fifty, while the 
Boches took their last devilish fling at him with their artillery. The men not 
on actual outpost duty were dragged forward into a couple of luxurious cow- 
sheds, where the reserve cans of Corned Willie were cracked oj^en with 
festive cheer and a bayonet. Oh — it should be said that the first thing they 
did was to build real, honest-to-God fires — big ones, hot ones such as they 
hadn't seen for weeks, calculated to take the chill out of one's marrow in 
no time at all. 

And lights at night, a whole row of them, without fear of calling down 
the aerial bombs and "whizz-bangs." Ever since we'd been in France, we 
had longed for the comfort of lights at night. Here they were, not only on 
our side of the river, but on the enemy's.

nice, soft board now that the guns were silent. You promptly stuffed those 
corking Kentucky men, who joined us there, full with the stories of how you 
won the war. 

Well, you helped. The Di\-ision of which you were a part feels that when 
General Pershing addressed to the First, Third and Fifth Corps his Oeneral 
Order No. 232, he was not unmindful of the work of the 77th:

It is with a sense of gratitude for its s])lendid accomplishment, which will 
live all through history, that I record in General Orders a tribute to the victory 
of the First Army in the Aleuse-xArgonne battle. 

Tested and strengthened by the reduction of the St. Mihiel salient, 
for more than six weeks you battered against the pivot of the enemy line 
on the western front. It was a position of imposing natural strength, stretch- 
ing on both sides of the Meuse River from the bitterly contested hills of 
Verdun to the almost impenetrable forest of the Argonne; a position, more- 
over, fortified by four years of labor designed to render it impregnable; a 
position held with the fullest resources of the enemy. That position you broke 
utterly, and thereby hastened the collapse of the enemy's military power. 

Soldiers of all the divisions engaged under the First, Third and Fifth 
Corps— the 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th, 7th, 26th, 28th, 29th, 32d, 33d, 35th, 37th, 
42(1, 77th, 78th, 79th, 80th, 82d, 89th, 90th and 91st— you will be long remem- 
bered for the stubborn persistence of your progress, your storming of obsti- 
nateh- defended machine gun nests, your penetration, yard by yard, of woods 
and ravines, your heroic resistance in the face of counter attacks supported 
by powerful artillery fire. P'or more than a month, from the initial attack 
of September 26th, you fought your way slowly through the Argonne, through 
the woods and over hills west of the Meuse; you slowly enlarged your hold

on the Cotes de IMeuse to the east; and then, on the first of November you 
cleared the entire left bank of the IMeuse south of Sedan, and then stormed 
the heights on the right bank and drove him into the plain beyond. 

Your achievement, which is scarcely to be equalled in American history, 
must remain a source of proud satisfaction to the troops who participated in 
the last campaign of the war. The American people will remember it as the 
realization of the hitherto potential strength of the American contribution 
toward the cause to which they had sworn allegiance. There can be no 
greater reward for a soldier or for a soldier's memory.

concerned; with cre(Hl to itself and ri'sultinj,' ])rot'it to our country and our 
cause. 

The Dixision in tiie |)ast tiiret' months of its history has nolhint,' whale\er 
lor which to apologize, ll has carried out the missions intrusted to it and has 
possessed at all times the aggressive spirit essential to success in war. 

We are now about to enter u])on another phase of our service as soldiers 
of the United States. That phase invokes a continued readiness i"or such 
oy)erations as may become necessary in the future. Ihis invokes improve- 
ment in our knowledge of the finer techni([ue of the military ])rofession so that 
even should no active operations now ensue, each olTicer and man of this 
Division will carry back with him into civil life such knowledge of his service 
as a soldier as will render him, individually, as trainer and commander, most 
available to the country in the e\ ent of another emergency. 

With this pur])ose in view the Division is now to go into a |)eriod of 
training. It must have been e\ident to all that our success in the operations 
in which we have been engaged has t)een due in great measure more lo the 
aggressive spirit of our officers and men than to our knowledge of the fuier 
technique of the military profession. .As a consccjucnce of this, whiU- we ha\ e 
been successful, while we ha\-e accom])lished the results which superior 
authority has expected of us, we ha\e at the same time ])robabl\ ])aid more 
dearly for that success than should ha\e been the case had our training been 
further advanced. The Division Commander therefore expects that a real- 
ization of our deficiencies in the finer technicjue of training will suffice to keej) 
our hearts in the work which lies before us. The Division now has an excellent 
reputation; it is our duty and our j)rivilege to demonstrate, during the period 
of training ujion which we are about to enter, that that rei)utation is founded 
not merely upon the evanescent success of battle where we have the e\c itinient 
of combat to keep us keyed uj) to the jiroper ]iitch, but that we also jiossess 
that steadfastness of heart and determination which will cause us to do our 
best under any concHtions which confront us. The Division Commander is 
convinced that we do possess those ((ualities of steadfastness and determination 
and that no criticism can be made against us on that score. 

Those who will observe us will ])ass judgment uyion the outward marks 
of discipline and instruction. As a matter of fact no other standard is ]K)ssible. 
Those outward indications are: jiromptness and smartness in saluting, neat- 
ness and cleanliness in dress and erjuipment, good condition of animals, and 
cleanhness and good order around billets and cantonments. The Division 
Commander is convinced that all will endeavor to set an exam])le in these 
items and thus maintain, during the period of training set before us. the high 
esteem which the Dixision has won in combat so that we may return lo our 
homes, when the i)roper lime comes for such return, retaining that esteem as

ne.xt, to ])olice yourselves and remain ])oliced despite the mud and the shortage 
of clothes; then, to dodge the Cor])sand Di\ision inspectors or to satisfy them 
on all the little points listed in the ])ami)hlet. It was difficult enough to 
please them. In the words of the Regular Army men : "These Reserve Officers 
are nice enough boys. They mean well ; but they don't know — they just don't 

kiiow. Yet they are being paid " Here the Reserve Oflicer feels like 

remarking caustically: "Yes, a short while ago we were earning far more than 
the one-sLxty-sLx, sLxty-seven, whereas those who are now getting much more, 
were then earning the one-sixt_\--sLx, sLxty-seven." 

An inspector approaches a company commander; he sa\s nothing. 

"'Mornin', sir," says the captain, saluting punctiliously. 

"Well? Is that the way you address yourself to an insjiector?" 

"Reckon it is, sir," drawls the captain, smiling in real Southern fashion. 

"Tell me who you are," imperiously. 

" Cap'nClarkcommandingCompanyE305thInfantry ! " 

"Very good. Now let me see one of your billets." Inspector and in- 
spected walk olT in tremulous silence. 

"\\Tiat is this doing here?" The inspector kicks a pile of blankets lying 
in a corner. 

"Look out there 1" whines a feeble voice as its tousled owner peers from 
beneath the blankets, hastily covers his head in mortification, unco\ers it 
again and makes as if to salute. 

"Why aren't you drilling?" 

"'Cause I'm sick." 

"Wliat's the matter with you?" 

"I dunno, sir." 

"Did you rejwrt on Sick Call last night?" 

"No, sir." 

"Why didn't you?" 

"'Cause I wasn't sick then." 

Having ascertained that the American Army is in good health, the in- 
spector moves olT to another part of town. "Show me the nearest kitchen," 
he says to a member of the neighboring comj^any; the latter, being a man of 
infinite resource and sagacity, conducts the officer to a kitchen behind the 
Chateau. 

"Whose kitchen is this?" growls the inspector. "It's the filthiest thing 
I've ever seen!"

"That's the Colonel's Mess," grins the adroit youth, who can hardly 
conceal his gloating satisfaction. 

"Take me to your company commander!" orders the dignitary; where- 
upon the aforesaid Intelligent Youth conducts Inspector to the company's 
best looking billet, excuses himself and hastens to warn the captain, who 
reports in haste. The first captain interviewed has already tipped otT the 
other as to the proper mode of address; consequently the preliminaries are 
quickly over. 

"Where is the sign which should aj^pear on the door of the billet stating 
how many are (|uartere(l here and who is in charge?" 

"The rain must have washed it off. sir," hoping that the other billets 
willnot be inspected. 

"These beds are pretty crowded. .\re the men sleeping as prescribed?" 

"Yes, sir; nose to — er, head to foot, sir. I inspect the billets every 
night." 

"That underwear should not hang in the sleeping quarters." 

"It must dry somewhere, sir." 

"Don't dry it in the sleeping quarters. Set aside one of your rooms for 
a sort of laundry. Put a stove in it, and keep it hot."

"Sir, (.'ver\- availal)le room is used for sleeping purj^oses. This is a mighty 
poor town. The Mayor cannot give us another inch of space. Besides, no 
stoves have been issued. This is the only fireplace in the building; but then, 
the issue of fuel is so meagre that it all goes to the kitchen lires. These 
clothes dry out a little during the day, and are further dried by whate\er sort 
of lire the men can scrape together at night." (They steal the wood.) 

"Mv bov," begins the inspector, feeling that he approaches the point 
where he can jnill the fa\'orite old Army gag and ])ass the buck; "don't say it 
can't be done. That word is not in our dictionary. Now, the real soldier, 
the real officer, is the one who utilizes every means at his dis])osal to accom- 
plish his object. When the proj)er materials are not forthcoming, he must 
exercise his ingenuity and initiati\e. He takes e\en the old tin can from the—

building into the _\ard. 

"That pit is full of water. Dig a new one." 

"That pit has just been dug, sir. The ground about here is so low and 
the rains so constant that " 

"Oh, I know. We had all those very same things to contend with in the 
Fhilijipines. It can be done somehow. Do you hang a lantern in that door- 
way at night?" 

"No, sir. There have been no lanterns issued, and we cannot buy 
them even with the company funds. The Supply Company can issue no 
oil for the few lam{)S we'\-e obtained from the civilians. Twelve candles are 
issued each da>- for two hundred and fifty men; but most of them have to be 
used in the Orderly Room, where the work is going on far into the night." 

"Do you maintain at the kitchen the two barrels of boiling water, one 
soa])y and' the other clear, and another of cold water, for the men to wash 
their mess kits in?" 

"No, sir. We haven't been issued the (1. i. cans; and besides, there is 
only enough fuel to cook the food with." 

■'Have you anj- recreation room, where the men can read at night.-'" 

" I should say we haven't, sir. .\s I said before, all the available rooms 
are used for the billeting. There are no books in town; there are no candles 
by which to read— if the men felt like doing anything after a hard day of drill 
but rush to the warm saloon. There is a Y. M. C. A. hut with a dirt floor 
and no ecjuipment. Sir, I felt a few minutes ago that }-ou did me a great 
injustice, calling me down before m_\' men. I admit I haven't been in the 
service quite two years; but I've been in it long enough to know that I'm sick 
and tired of this 'passing the buck I'" He ho])es the inspector has a sjxirk of 
human sym])athy left, after the rigors of the Philippines. 

"What do you mean— passing the buckl" This indignantly. 



200 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

"Sir, I mean just that. I am ordered to do things without the necessar>' 
wherewithal. If the Army really wanted those things done, it would supply 
the equipment, instead of passing the buck. I am the only officer on duty 
now with this company. I am ordered to attend Reveille and to conduct in 
person the ten minutes setting up exercise preceding it. I am ordered to be 
at the kitchen to inspect the serving of all meals; I am ordered to inspect the 
billets before drill. I drill all morning, rain or shine, as the orders require. 
I inspect the noon meal. I drill in the afternoon, inspect the guard detail, 
and perhaps perform the duties of the Officer of the Day. I stand Retreat. 
I conduct the non-com. 's school for another hour. I inspect the evening meal, 
and then attend to all the foolish orders which arrive at night. In the mean- 
time, I have to live, and am recjuired to be neat in appearance at all times. 
I am held personally responsible for equipment, the cleanliness, the health 
and happiness of this company. And yet I am told to do fooHsh things with 
tin cans! The men aren't happy. They have miserable quarters and get too 
much bully beef. .An order says that only the Brigade Commander is author- 
ized to permit the drill indoors during inclement weather. Not one day yet 
has been decreed inclement. The other morning we drilled until noon in a 
terrible downpour. At one o'clock I sought permission to remain indoors, 
but we were sent out again in wet clothes in the continuous downpour. 
The men have no change of clothes. They come back drenched to the skin, 
with no welcome but a dirt floor on which their blankets are stretched, 
with no wood for a lire, with no candles for light, and meagre cheer. They 
are out there now drilling in wet clothes!" 

"It isn't raining now. WTiy aren't the blankets out airing?" 

"Because it was raining when the men went out to drill, and in all prob- 
ability it will be raining again, in a few minutes." 

"Well, there are some things which the supply departments might im- 
prove. I will make a note of the wood situation. Oh, be sure to keep the 
men's shoes well oiled, and don't let them put their drying pair too near the 
fire. How are your other billets? " 

"Er, about the shoes. They ha\e on now their only pair. There is no 
dubbin. The shoes cannot possibly be kept neat and clean, for the mud 
they drill in reaches almost to the shoe-tops. I'll take you to the shacks 
where two other platoons are gradually sinking out of sight in the mud. Ha! 
It's raining now." 

"Well, I'll see what I can do," and he's off to inspect someone else. 

The poor, down-trodden doughboy has something to say, too: 

In the army they call me a Private. 

It is a misnomer. 

There is nothing private about me. 

I have been questioned and examined by fifty physicians, and they haven't 
missed a blemish. 

I have told my numerous occupations and my salary. 

I have confessed to being unmarried. 



THE HARDEST BATTLE OF THE WAR ioi 

I have nothing in my pasl that is not revraled. 

I sleep in a room with fifty men. 

I eat with three hundred and wash my mess kit in the same can. 

I take my bath with the entire company. 

1 wear a suit of the same material and cut as fi\c million other men. 

I have to tell where I want to go when I take a walk and e\en then I 
never see an)-one but soldiers — privates like mj-self.

And >'et, the_\- call me a private. 

Private I 

What the hell! 

(For three years I sui)ported a wife and child and now I'm told when to 
go to bed!) 

Aw — but it wasn't all as bad as that — not until the first few days after 
the move to oMayenne. Things straightened out somehow. The Y. M. C. A. 
bucked up and did some good work. The canteens opened. I Comy)an}- 
worked up a pretty good show% the chief attraction of which was Private 
Martin, the female impersonator, who exercised his wiles upon numerous 
celebrities of the Regiment. With the funds donated by the faithful Au.xilian,- 
wonderful Christmas dinners were purchased in Chaumont — whither those 
with large company funds would journey each w^eek-end to return with a cart- 
load of veal, or mutton, dried fruit and vegetables. One enteqirising company 
bought, for a fortune, as many as sixty hens from the neighboring towns, 
fattened them up and had a wonderful feast. 

But there were those who missed their Christmas dinner. It was said 
benignly in the newspapers that President Wilson spent the da\' with his sol- 
diers. Would he have done it, had he realized that in order to manufacture 
that riot of a review at Humes, two hundred and fift}- picked soldiers from 
each regiment had to drill all Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in the rain, 
board motor trucks at four o'clock in the morning and spend nearly all of 
Christmas day on the road? Yet, those who were chosen were flattered, got 
new equipment out of it and the envied Liberty Insignia which looked as if 
Goldberg had designed it. 

Already, it is January. A few leaves are granted; but — oh, if we could 
only be sent home! The 27th Division is going to sail. The 77th hangs on, 
though it preceded the other division to France. It cannot go, of course, 
until the threatened epidemic of txphoid is suppressed. "I gave orders two 
weeks ago," thunders the General, "that this typhoid fever should stoj). // 
lias not stopped!" 

A doughboy found himself on leave in Aix les Bains. It was in the xcar 
1930. There was Uncle Sam coming down the street. 

"Hello, Nephew!" said Uncle Sam. 

"Hello, Uncle," said the doughboy. 



A HISTORY OF THE 305 th INFANTRY 




"What are you doing 
here?" asked Uncle Sam. "I 
thought all the American 
soldiers were back in the 
States." 

"Still here," replied the 
boy dejectedly. 

"What division do }-ou 
belong to?" 

"The 77th." 

"By Heck! That's so," 
exclaimed the dear old absent- 
minded fellow. "I'd plumb 
orgotten all about you!" 

Rumor has it that early 
n February we are to move 
own to the celestial Le Mans 
area to be cleaned up, prior 
to the saihng for home. The 
town crier passes through the 
streets, beating his drum and 
shouting to all good citizens that the Americans are leaving shorth — and that 
all claims, justitied and imaginary, should be put in at once. 

The citizens bestir thcmsehes, take inventory of every scrap of refuse 
that has been hanging around for years, and tile their claims with the Mayor. 
Madam Haschette has been feeding her pigs on the leavings from the 
Supply Company kitchen, the Mess Sergeant being only too glad to have her 
take the stuff away. For some days, she has been casting a loving eye in the 
direction of a kettle full of beef drippings, which the cooks suddenly use for 
a batch of steaming doughnuts. 

Ciesticulating wildly, almost tearing her hair out by the roots, the good 
woman descends in voluble wrath upon the Company Commander with a 
claim for fifty francs! Those beef drippings rightly belonged to her. (This 
is about the only claim which the Americans succeed in side-stepping.) 

Four or five pickets disappear from a fence built just after the War of 
1870. Claim: forty francs. The coping has fallen from a stone wall; ten 
meters of wall — at ten francs per meter. Claim: one hundred francs. Two 
bee-hi\-es are overturned, the bees absent, the honey unaccounted for. Since 
the burden of proof in such cases lies with the accused, the company whose 
area lies nearest the hives is the loser. An imaginary pile of wood is claimed 
to have been stolen; fifty francs. But since the Americans and French, as 
said before, are brothers. Monsieur Marechal comes down to ten, and sets up 
the drinks. 

But ah ! Here is a deep one ! The Town Commandant writes to Captain 
Siebert: "One of your neighbors reports that one rooster and five hens dis-

all four com])anies are tuially ordered to chip in, jjurchasing out of their com- 
pany funds an t-phemeral ])ortion of wanishod chicken for ever_\- man in town. 

At last, we are off, in the coldest touch of winter since the bitter days at 
l"l)lon. At the most incon\enient hours of tlu' night, the comiianies file 
through the snow drifts to Hricon, leaving enough e(|uipmi'nt behind losupi»l_\-

gradually passing. Xo longer can the men have an issue of clothing for the 
asking. They enter the Province of Mayenne with all their possessions listed 
upon the "Form 637." 

Here is a different sort of country; rather picturescjue but muddy and 
aU cut up by foolish little ditches and hedges. But real people Hve in the 
neighborhood, many of the nobility, with spacious grounds and large chateaux. 
The bulk of the Third Battalion captures the prize, when it draws the town 
of St. Denis d'Anjou. Bouere, w^here Regimental Headquarters and most of 
both the Plrst and Fourth Battalions are quartered, is so promising that Major 
Metcalf —now a Lieutenant-Colonel — has all the houses numbered, and gives 
perfectly grand names to all the streets: "Rue Marechal Foch," "Place 
Wilson," and all the rest. For a couple of weeks the Second Battalion shifts 
disconsolately 'round and 'round Bierne, like a dog tr>-ing to make up his 
mind just where to sit down, and hnall>- locates enough outlying farm buildings 
for its needs. 

"All subordinate commanders will immediately take steps to improve 
the condition in and around billets of the organizations." 

An order beginning in this wise overtakes one of the company commanders 
while high-stepping through the miles of mud which separate the five farms 
in which his two hundred and fifty babies are billeted. They are in disconsolate 
hay lofts, stepping about gingerly lest they fall through the cracks, debating 
whether to stuff the borrowed straw into the chniks against the wintr>^ blast, 
or burrow into it for warmth. Stoves, if thev had 'em, would doubtless set

fire to the bams — and so, stoves and fires are forbidden, (rrulj time; they 
clamber down a ladder into the darkness of the cow-stable, wiure comrades 
not so fortunate make their home. 

"If I am going to sleep here," wails a \-oice in the darkness, "steps must 
be taken to clean that cow." 

The order continues: "Kitchens: Particular attention will be given to 
kitchens. (1) Walks will be laid and suitable steps will be taken to keej) the 
ground well drained in and about the kitchens. (2) Bins, etc., for the storing 
of rations will be constructed from the boxes in which the rations are received. 
(3) Stringers will be laid on the ground to prevent all foodstufi"s from touching 
the ground in any way." 

A kitchen presupposes a range of some sort with Urv under it. I'or a 
week there is one small field range to the comi)an_\-, suitable for feeding perhaps 
a hundred and fifty; but the government has utterly forgotten the question 
of fuel. Those who still have a little money in the company fund buy some 
wet rotten roots at an exorbitant price from the neighbors, and the few small 
boxes which come with the rations provide the onh" scraps of dr>' kindling with 
which to start the fires. Particular attention is given to the kitchen without 
command; the men take steps toward it three times a day, assembling from 
the more distant parts of France; but they see no bins until the government 
takes another half-step and provides a bit of fuel — a species of pressed coal 
dust which sifts through the grates without burning. Stone is poured into 
the yard which serves as kitchen, but it sinks out of sight in the mud. At- 
tempt is made to drain the area, but still each foot print fills at once with 
water. Stringers are not provided. If they were, who could resist the tempta- 
tion to steal the first real piece of inflammable wood to enter the area? 

But to continue reading the order: "(4) All steps necessary for a most 
sanitary condition about the kitchen will be taken." 

The Surgeon of the area has no horse. He succeeds in the course of one 
half day in making the rounds of one company, returns to his billet in disgust, 
scrapes the mud off his legs from the knees down, and makes criticisms from 
his desk thereafter. "Dig a hole and bury the garbage," he sagely writes, 
thus earning his salary for the day. Holes are dug, which fill with water, ere 
any garbage can be thrown in. 

"Assembly Rooms: (1) P>ach organization will set apart a ])articular 
room or rooms where the men can assemble." 

If there be an empt}- room an}"\vhere about the area suitable for assem- 
bling, why, in Heaven's name not take a few unfortunates out of the cow 
stable and billet them properly? Besides, orders ha\'e been given for the men 
not to assemble, lest epidemics spread among them. 

" (2) These rooms will be used for writing rooms, and be i)rovided with 
such ecjuipment as will enable the men to amuse themseh'es in their spare 
time." Warmth — stoves anfl wood — paper, ink, pens; tables, benches or the 
w^ood to make 'em out of; checkers, cards, reading matter; candles or lamps. 
Here is a great chance for the company commander to use his proverbial

ingenuit}- and his far-famed, well-known initiative, fabricating these things 
out of nothing. Ah, slo\-es arri\-el But the issue of fuel is so microscopic 

that none can be di- 
^■erted for any use but 
that of the kitchen 
stove. 

" (3) The co-oper- 
ation of the Red Cross, 
Y. M. C. A., K. of C. 
and other similar or- 
ganizations will be 
sought in securing the 
necessary equipment

the course of four 
weeks, a few full steps 
are successfully taken.

Ah! Here is the paragraph which the company commander always ex- 
pects: "This work calls for considerable initiative uj)on the part of all officers, 
and it will be the duty of each and e\er>- organization commander to detail an 
officer and make it his especial duty to get this work well under way and super- 
vise it. By the exercise of initiative and ingenuity, considerable progress can 
be made with this work to the great benefit of the troops." 

Initiative and ingenuity I How the buck is passed! Invariably the 
Regular Army Officer in higher command passes off the lack of proper supplies 
and equipment by saying: "I've been a company commander and I know 
these things can be done." Yes, we say — to ourselves — you had three officers, 
sergeants with years of service, and about eighty men in your company ; there 
was no real war; no French town to billet in; and no homesick mob on your 
hands. 

But the steps must go on. One supposes that if on some fine, cold night 
the steps should be taken from the porch of the Mairie, immediate steps would 
have to be taken to replace the steps which had been taken. 

The iMachine Gunners are off by themselves in miserable billets; but they 
have a good ball-field; and presently a gO(jd ball team is evolved to play in 
the Division League. But even without a ball-field, G Company in Bierne 
considers itself in luck. On that first cold night of their arrival, February 
11th, seven officers of the Second Battalion were not at all happy over the

prospect of walking a kilo out into the country, to dine with the Mayor. Hut 
when they entered the lovel\- Chateau de la Barre, and were there f,M\en the 
keys to the city by the genial Baron de C'hivrc and his attractive family, 
things were looking up. In fact, a great man>- oflK-ers of tlu' Ri'ginienl 
promptly came over to look up those who were on the inside- until within a 
very short time, almost any bright afternoon might disclose a grou]) of en- 
thusiasts playing "bazz-boU" in the courtyard. Many an indoor baseball 
fell into the moat. And many a cup of tea was stirred after four — at any day 
of the week one chose to sneak away from the irksome militar\- routine. 
Major Bozeman Bulger, who came over to guide the Second Battalion through 
the perils of March and Ai)ril, after Major "Bill" Mark had made a tirrible 
mistake and elected to attend a French University, at one time made the 
following report to the Division Publicity Oflicer: 

"The officers and enlisted men of Comi)any (i are engagetl in soKing a 
problem so absorbing in detail that for the present it has made them forget the 
anxiety over heading for Amerif[ue — that interesting country across the seas. 

"Naming a horse, especiall_\' a petite femme che\al, is not as eas\- as one 
might think, especially after studying the specifications laid down by llie three 
young daughters of the Baron de Chivre. Any soldier having any douljt on 
the subject may report to the commanding officer of Co. (i and get a try out. 

"This ])etite femme cheval, as the Baroness calls it, came into existence

" Tl faut que les soldats Americains give to the cheval its name," insists 
the Baroness." 

"'Aussi,' chimes in the seventeen-year ]\Ille. Jacqueline de Chivre. 'II 

est necessaire a remem- 
ber que it iss une petite 
femme.' 

'"C'est ca,' ob- 
ser\es the first sergeant, 
that being all that he 
knows how to say ; but 
the corporal adds 'Ex- 
act e m e n t , ' making 
everything all right. 
"The first name 
suggested was 'Toot- 
sweet, ' a private having 
an idea of speed, espe- 
cially toward home. 
Objections were raised 
on the ground that it 
was not 'Americaine.' 
Then came 'T. N. T.' 
(heaw stuff) from a 
buck who lives down 
near Sheepshead Bay. 
Lieutenent Murphy 
suggested 'Tippecanoe,' but it was impossible to get the idea of the American 
Indian home to the French nobility. Somebody then suggested 'Topsy,'

The Regimental Show begins to take on a professional air; the Jewish

to conduct a Catholic Mass therein; the entertainment officers and the athletic 
officers find plenty to do. Life wouldn't be quite so bad if it weren't for the 
constant reviews, hiking at four in the morning with the unexpended portion

of the day's rations in onk'r to go over into the next county to show the 
General that the shoes are still muddy. Many a company commander has 
often wondered what would ha])pen if he should yield to temptation and bring 
his company upon the field with j^acks full of straw instead of the ordinary 
weighty contents — what would happen if he were then unexpectedly gi\en the 
command to lay out full equipment! He might be seen leaping over the dis- 
tant horizon like a gazelle, headed jvi \

Miss Turner and ]\Iiss Weeks, 
who operate the Y. AI. C. A. canteen 
in Bouere, swear that they never did 
say, sweetly, "Bring your cui)s to 
Mother, Buddy." Nevertheless, 
the chocolate they pour out and 
which they indefatigably cart to all 
points wherever troops gather, 
threatens to put some of the cafes out of business. I he madame who runs 
the estaminet across the street can't understand why the authorities should 
close up her shop at an early hour, while the "Cafe Christian" runs full tilt. 




210 A HISTORY OF THE 3()5th INFANTRY 

One has to confess at this point that for some, the " Y. M. C. A. cognac" 
did not appear completely satisfying — not with the Prohibitionists voting 
America dr\-, while they were far off and could have no sa}-. Despite the 
constant pressure, cognac continued to be sold, which occasioned a bit of 
work — sorry to admit — for the Courts Martial. 

The General Court convenes in Bouere at ten-thirty, to ladle out justice. 
By eleven o'clock, all but two of the members have arrived. No doubt the 
feather-beds and wash-stand detract somewhat from the dignity of the court- 
room. But no matter! 

"Hullo, Bob! How are you? Billets comfortable? That so? Yeah, 
same old storj-, isn't it."" 

Only one missing, now. 

"I declare, it's warmer with the window open than with it closed. No, 
I guess it's warmer with it closed. Close the window, will you. Bob? Some- 
one see if they can't steal a few bits of fire-wood from the old lady. These 
tile floors are brutally cold — particularly for a bedroom. How the devil do 
you work this fireplace? — Oh, ah, oui, oui, Madame, beaucoup."' 

Ah! Eleven-thirty; all present. "There, Lieutenant, sit down at the 
extreme right." 

Counsel enters with the accused. The judges are sworn. The court is 
sworn. The reporter is sworn. Everybody swears to everything, so help them 
God. The accused — is he the accused? He 'lows as how he is. Does the 
accused object to being tried by any member of the court as constituted? 
Passing up the opportunity of telling what he really thinks of the third officer 
from the left, he steals a furtive glance at the members who glower dignifiedly 
from their uncomfortable bench and rest their august elbows upon the plank- 
and-saw-horse table. The trial proceeds. 

Court is closed. Court is ojiened, but justice is delayed until the prisoner, 
who has just stepped over to the cafe, can be found. Ah, here he is. The 
cigarettes are hastily subdued beneath the table. Court closes again. It 
opens again. It cjuivers. A little more of this setting-up exercise, and 
the court will be able to open and close at will. 

Accused elects to make a statement, setting forth the mitigating circum- 
stances : 

"When I was very young I couldn't talk. In fact, for a long time I 
couldn't talk at all. But when I got a little older, I finally learned to talk a 
little better. Then I went to school. I went to school and was very nervous. 
All this time, I was learning to talk " 

"The accused is reminded," suggests the President of the Court, breaking 
all precedents, "to confine " 

"I object," interposes counsel. 

"Objection sustained," from the Judge Advocate. 

" learning to talk. Then I left school. I wasn't very strong. Oh, 

I forgot — I was born in Brooklyn. I wasn't strong. I was weak. And I

" Come to the facts," risk.s the President. (Short and sna])i)\-like, ere the 
counsel can leap to his feet and object.) lioljby Morgan's Siberian mouse-

table, yawns, and sniffs the prisoner. Ca]itain McKa>'s wandering jx'ncil 
decorates another scjuare foot of board. The members begin to lulget, hoping 
the court will soon be closed again, and feel of their coat pockets to sec if 
the cigarettes are handy.

Twenty-eight minutes later the di-fense rests. 
"Six-and-six." Justice is done. 

What point have we got to now, in this stor}-? 
shut u]) shoj) and call it a war? Aren't the troo])s o 
Fifth about to leave for the United States? Not just yet, for there is still to 
be a merr>-, mad whirl of inspections— inspections for this, inspections for that 
— all eciuipment, no ecjuipment; ins])ections for, er — cooties, too. 

"You will report by such and such a date," the order reads, "that your 
regiment is free from louse-infestation. The Division Surgeon reports tliat 
the degree of infestation in }-our command is one per cent." 

The adiutanl

wonders if that 
means one louse 
per man ; but being 
a stickler for precise 
English, he finds it 
very sim])le to 
comply with the 
order. He ])igeon- 
holes it, and on 
"such and such" a 
date writes to the 
Powers That Be: 
"In compliance 
with Order so and 
so, this Regiment is reported free from louse-infestation." 

But that doen't seem to purify the command. .\ machine is brought to

And Sergeant Bill, too bashful for any display of emotion, at the same time 
perfectly willing to convey the impression that he has forgotten all the English

How did these men feel about their home-coming? Who knows? They 
were too happy to express it. All they cared about was a reunion with the 
folks. They got it soon. Those ten days at Camp Alills, j-jreceding the jiarade 




up Fifth A\enue on the 6th of ]\Iay, going through the formality of another 
cleaning, issuing passes to bulky groups, losing all track of the A. W. O. L.'s, 
performing the hundred and one paper precautions leading up to the discharge 
at Camp Upton on the 9th, were a perfect riot. The Regiment evaporated. 
It seemed as if at one minute there had been a well-organized and functioning 
unit, and that in the next, it was nothing. There was no time for sentiment. 
Those who wanted to say "Farewell," forgot to. No one could do anything. 
About all they really cared for was getting back to the home they had left — 
as they had left it — and back to the old job — or a better one, which they 
deserved. Not, of course, forgetting the Army's sixty-dollar bonus. 

Yet, at a spread where the old Camp Upton veterans of one company 
tried to blow in at one fell swoop the unexpended portion of their Ration 
Savings, there was something akin to sentiment displayed. Speeches were

APPENDIX 



THE THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTH 
INFANTRY AUXILIARY 

If there is any one thing which the se\-cral units of the Regiment are 
pleased to hold in common, it is our recollection and heartfelt appreciation of 
the Auxiliary's work — the admirable intent with which it was founded, the 
loyal, self-sacrificing, helpful spirit which kept it alive, the moral and material 
benefits it extended to the soldiers of the Three Hundred and l-'ilth Infantry 
and their families. 

When creature comforts were few in training areas and trenches, such 
articles as were placed in our hands by the efforts of the Auxiliary— jam, 
cookies, cigarettes, tobacco, socks, sweaters, funds for Christmas dinners — 
brought joy to the weary heart. When news from home was scarce, there 
was the latest copy of the Bulletin attesting the good cheer and helpful co- 
operation of wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts. It comforted; for it 
proved we were not forgotten. It encouraged us to more and honorable deeds. 
When on the point of yielding to miserable self-pity we were helped to 
remember that the hardships of war existed for both sides of the Atlantic. 

A complete story of the Auxiliary deserves to be written, though we i)rint 
here but a modest statement of the Auxiliary's puq:)Ose and work, written 
by Mr. Stephen H. Olin of New York, patron saint of the Regiment: 

In Februan.', 1918, at Mrs. Smedberg's house on Long Island, soldiers' 
wives and mothers formed a society for the ser\-ice and the honor of tiie Three 
Hundred and Fifth Regiment, Infantry.

2i2 A HISTORY OP^ THE 3 05th INFANTRY 

The work of this Auxiliar>' began with the making of thirty-seven hundred 
comfort kits and its first task of sympathy and encouragement was set when 
an accident to a troop train killed and wounded some of the soldiers on their 
way to the transport. 

An office was opened at No. 280 Madison Avenue. A roster of the families 
was made and they were invited to unite in doing for the Regiment what each 
did for its own soldier. Company organizations were formed and there were 
regular meetings, sometimes grave and sometimes joyful. Visiting and corre- 
spondence were regulated. If sorrow or misfortune came to any household 
there was sympathy and methodical assistance. Funds were collected, a 
monthly paper was published, news from the front was posted and distributed, 
and home news was sent in return with messages of congratulation and affec- 
tion. 

It might be possible, from the pages of "The Bulletin" or from files and 
records, to put together statistics of all this — so many hundreds of visits and 
letters, so many thousands of dollars for tobacco or chocolate or for holiday 
presents, so many thousand socks knitted and sent — but the important thing 
was not a matter of statistics, but the broad fact that even,- one who shared 
in the work was the better for it. All these scattered families took counsel 
together; a plucky letter from the front brightened a hundred homes. The 
bravest and steadiest voices were oftenest heard at the Company meetings. 
All these women grew more helpful, more hopeful, more cheerful, more jealous 
of the renown which the gallant Regiment was gaining. 

The Auxiliary held three general meetings. The first was at the Engineers 
Club, on March io, 1918. A few hundred people came together, anxious and 
doubtful what they could find to do. 

At the same place on May 20th, was the second mass meeting. It was 
then announced that the Regiment had arrived in France, and that the 
Auxiliary was ready for work. The Committees reported progress to a thou- 
sand members in the upper room and then to almost as many more crowding 
the halls below. 

The third was a festival on December 14th. The Lexington Opera House, 
gay with flags, was crowded to the doors. Madame Alda, Miss Dressier and 
other artists appeared. The Reverend Doctor Stires told of his visits to the 
Regiment in its rest billets. That fine soldier. General Bell, spoke of the 
formation of the 77th Division at Camp Upton. Cable messages were heard 
from Colonel Sheldon, General Smedberg, General Wittenmyer, General 
Alexander and General Pershing. These were welcome citations of the Regi- 
ment and of the Auxiliary. At General Wittenm>er's phrase "There is 
nothing better than the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry," the audience 
thrilled with pride and joy. 

Thus there was the meeting of Assembly, the meeting of Organization 
and the meeting of \'ictorv. 

Of the three jiarades of the Regiment in New York streets a like descrip- 
tion might be given.

Thus in the first the Regiment streamed uncertainly towards the muster 
at Camp Upton. In the second, on February 22d, it marched with unlooked- 
for steadiness down Fifth Avenue, and so, trium])hant, its work done, its fame 
secured, the Regiment made its last parade. 

The Auxiliary', too, working at its task, gained greater unity, a brighter 
purpose, and even, at times, something of disciy)line. The Auxiliary joined 
the 77th Division Home Auxiliary Association and contributed its quota 
toward the expenses of prejiaring the old Astor Library for the returning 
Division Association. 

When the Regiment came home the Auxiliary received its members at 
189 Madison Avenue, a spacious and comfortable club house, with reading 
rooms and billiard rooms and rooms for company reception, and there in a few 
weeks the acti\ities of the Auxiliary will end. 

]\Irs. Smedberg has been Vice-President of the .Vuxiliary, Mrs. Duncan 
H. Browne, Vice-President and head of the Social Welfare Committee. Mrs. 
Charles D. Miller has been Secretary and also Chairman of the Headcjuarters 
Committee. Mrs. Duncan Harris has been head of the Publicity Committee, 
Mrs. Walter Metcalf of the Tobacco Fund and Mrs. Stephen H. Olin of the 
Wool Committee. 

y\T. Olin has been President and Dr. Edward H. Peaslee, Treasurer.

OPERATIONS, SEPT. 26— NOV. 12, 1918 

IT has been imi:)nicticable to give, in the foregoing narrative, minute details 
as to exact disposition of troops and full operations from September 26 
to November 12, 1918, inclusive. We print, therefore, the complete 
official report covering this period, as made to General Robert Alexander, 
Commanding 77th Division, through military channels. 

orERATIONS REPORT, 305TH INFANTRY, 

September 26 to November 12, 1918 

ARGONNE FOREST 

MEUSE RIVER 

1. Situation at beginning of battle of the Argonne Forest: 

The enemy held a strongly organized position in which the same Landwehr Divisions had li\cd quietly 
for as long as two years. The French position was also highly organized. There had been little activity 
for many months, a complete stabihzation having taken place after the desperate fighting of 1915. 

Having come by trucks and marching to a supposed rest area, our troops relieved French elements 
with the exception of an outpost screen left to cover the presence of Americans in the sector. Preparations 
for the attack were complicated by the arrival of 900 replacements, most of whom were recent arrivals 
from the United States, on September 24th. 

The order of battle was 154th Brigade, 306th Infantry, .305th Infantry, 2Sth Division. 

Situation at beginning of attack of November 1st: 

The Battle of the Argonne having passed into semi-stable warfare, this regiment was relie\ed for 
two weeks' rest and training period at Camp de Bouzon. The line was not advanced by the 78th and 
S2d Divisions during this time. The 305th, as the attacking regiment of the 77th Division, relieved all 
except an outpost screen of the 82d Division on a front of 2>2 kilos, on night October .30 and 31. 

The order of battle for the 1st Corps was 7Sth, 77th, 80th 

2. September 25//:.— Regtl. P. C, 20H, Nouveau Cottage. By midnight the 2d BattaMon moved to

line from the French Infantry.

B C 1 Plat., Co. L 

.\tter extensive destructive artillery fire, the 2d Battalion went over the top at 5H55, following a 
barrage at 500 yards. Little infantry resistance and light shelling met until afternoon, when the line 
had reached the road at Barricade Pav. on the left and within 500 meters of Carr. des Meurissons on the 
right where it was held by machine gun fire. The 1st and 2d Battalions were mixed in two groups — on 
the right. A, less one platoon, C and F Companies, Capt. Eaton (2d Bn.) commanding; A Company was 
in the lead in trench at 00.25-70.7. On the left, B, D, E, G, H, and one platoon, of A, Capt. Purcell, 
Company B. commanding, along road to Barricade Pav., in liaison with the .30Gth. Third Battalion in 
reserve moved during the afternoon to 00.0-69.9.

earlv in the attack, and in consolidating the position for the night the following formation was adopted: 

f H Jl 2 plats. I L 

Captain Dodge <l G 3 Plats. K 1 plat. K F '^ Major Harris 

I K 2 plats. I I 

M Company was counter-attacked three times in the afternoon but drove back the enemy success- 
fully to the valley north of the position where he reformed for each new attack. Three hundred of the 
enemy were seen to enter this valley. Nine (9) machine guns were captured by M and L in the day's 
operations. 

Xovemher -'(/.— Rcgtl. P. C. wil h trooiis. l.JH, Thenorgues. Attack at (iH30 by 2(1 and 3d battalions. 
H and G Companies entered Champigneulle from the west but were held out of the other part of the town 
until 8H by fire of our own aitillery. The 2d battalion, E and F having rejoined, then advanced north. 
The 3d Battalion met machine gun resistance at beginning of the attack but this was soon withdrawn 
and the advance was continued throughout the day with the 2d Battalion, reaching Thenorgues at loH. 
The 1st Battahon, 30()lh, advancing on the right, had swung in front of this regiment. The position 
at Thenorgues was organized with the 2d Battalion west of the town, the 3d Battahon in support. 
Captain Tiebout, Company G, placed in command of the 2d Battalion. The 1st Battahon, less Com- 
pany B (combat liaison), and three companies of the 1st Battalion, 306th, were sent forward by C. O., 
305th Infantry, under Major Sloane to attempt to reach Harricourt through Buzancy. At 17H, recon- 
naissance by INIajor Sloane found enemy in position on heights north of Buzancy covering the road which 
was lighted by burning buildings. The column took i)osition along the road about one kilometer south 
of Buzancy. 

Novcmbir ji/.— Regtl. P. C. with troops. 17H, St. Pierremont. Regiment in support of 30l3th. 
First Battalion ordered across country to .Autruche to cover left flank and connect with the 78th Division 
was unable to cross the marsh southwest of Buzancy and was forced to return to the road and follow the 
column through Buzancy. Order of march: 2d, 3d, 1st Battalions. Passed through towns of Buzancy, 
Bar and Harricourt and reached position for the night on road west of St. Pierremont — 3d Batt:dion 
800 meters from the town; 2d Battahon in railroad cut 2 kilometers from the town; 1st Battalion on for- 
ward slope 500 meters southwest of Fontenoy. 

November ^th. — 153d Brigade leapfrogged by 307th, our Brigade becoming Division Reserve; 2d and 
3d Battalions remained in position; 1st BattaUon moving forward 400 yards north of Fontenoy in the 
morning and returning to former bivouac for the night, suffering casualties from shell fire. 

November jlk. — Regtl. P. C. with troops. 17H. in shacks one kilo, south of La Bagnolle cross-roads. 
The division sector was divided into a two-brigade front with the 153d on the right. Third and 2d Bat- 
talions, in support of the 306th, marched north by muddy wood trails in vicinity of Les Cendrieres I'arm. 
H and G were separated from the battalion at nightfall and were not found until morning. 

November 6lli. — Regtl. P. C, La Basace. The 3d Battalion with K, L and I in the line took up the 
advance from the 306th just north of La Basace and passed through Flaba. where slight machine gim 
resistance was met. By nightfall, K Company on the left had occupied Chamblage Farm with patrols to 
Autrecourt. I Company on the right was in the Bois de Pourron. During the night one platoon of K 
was put in Autrecourt and one in \'illers-devent-Mouzon. First Division on our right had cut across 



242 A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

the entire front of oui sector. The 2d Battalion was in support in Bois Gerfaux; First Battalion left 
St. Pierremont where they had remained in Division Reserve at 8H passed through La Basace at 15H 
and took position in Bois de Yoncq along Flaba-Yoncq road. 

November 7//;.— Regll. P. C, Nouveau Mont-Joie, 9H30. Autrecourt, 16H30. K and L Companies 
entered Autrecourt and Villers, covering a detachment of the 302d Engineers which built a bridge over 
the Meuse River at Villers. First and 2d Battalions marched toward .Autrecourt. At 13H, 1st Battalion 
relieved 3d Battalion, A and D Companies taking up the covering position west of Villers. Enemy was 
firing on the Engineers with machine guns and rifles, their fire being opposed by our own which enabled 
the bridge to be completed at 2.45. .At 3.30, two platoons (20 men) of Company A crossed bridge and 
dug in. Before other troops were pushed across, an order came to stabilize our positions. About 16H, 
heavy artillery, minnenwerfer and machine gun fire developed causing numerous casualties in A Company 
on both slopes of the river. D Company took position alcng railroad track north of Autrecourt. H and 
E collected material for rafts under machine gun fire between Autrecourt and Mouzon. H Company 
took night position in Roufly, E returning to .Autrecourt; 3d Battalion was billeted in .Autrecourt. 

November Sth. — Regtl. P. C, Le Laveau, 18H. Companies C and D established outpost positions along 
railroad from Villers to Le Faubourg. .At 9H30 enemy artillery opened heaw fire on bridge and A Com- 
pany's position, forcing the company to withdraw and destroying the bridge. Five men. all but one 
wounded, remained on the east side of the river. They were brought across with the loss of one man at 
nightfall by Captain Brown and detachment of the 302d Engineers. A Company was put in support 
near Pourron and B Company north of Le Laveau; 2d Battalion withdrawn from Autrecourt to supporting 
position and 3d Battalion to reserve west of Chamblage Farm. During the night patrol of Lieutenant 
JIcDowell and Corporal Barth (Company C) crossed the river on a raft penetrating the enemy's lines 
for a kilo, and a half through .Amblimont and gained valuable information. The patrol covered 10 kilos. 

November glh. — Regtl. P. C, Mont-Joie Farm, 18H30. The regimental sector was extended to Petit 
Remilly, exclusive, a front of 5 kilometers, the 2d Battalion was moved into the left sub-sector with H 
and F in outpost positions along heights, joining the 1st Battalion at the railroad station 500 meters 
north of Autrecourt. Lieut. -Colonel \'ernon W. Boiler assigned to command the regiment. 

November loth. — In the afternoon. Lieutenant Gilliam, B Company, with two men crossed the river 
and located enemy positions. Other patrols along the west bank of the river drew fire. Night combat 
patrols from 1st and 2d Battalions were ordered back by Brigade Hqrs. after having crossed the river. 
Further orders from Brigade prohibited any aggressive action. Bridge at \"illers was reconstructed during 
the afternoon with covering detachment of one platoon of D Company. Cossack post was established in 
the mill at Pte. de Garde. 

November 7///;.— Regtl. P. C, Le Laveau 13H30. Cossack post was pushed across dam over the 
canal and the river at Pte. de Garde, establishing near eastern bank of the Meuse. Previous orders to 
thin the line and get more troops under shelter were carried out. Notification of armistice received at 9H. 
Enemy shelling on right of sector until IIH, when armistice went into effect. 

November /j///.— Regiment relieved by 9Sth French Infantn'. marched 22 kilos, to bi'.lets in St. Pierre- 
mont. 

3. On September 26th, at the jump off, our regiment opposed the 120th and 125th regiments of the 
2d Landwehr Division. The 122d Regiment of this same unit came, in in order to strengthen the enemy 
front north of .Abri du Crochet. No other units were identified in the remainder of the push to the Aire. 
It is probable from captures made three days after our relief that units of the 240th Division took part in 
the resistance north of St. Juvin, October 13-15th. When this regiment attacked north of St. Juvin on 
November 1st the following enemy units were in line: 240th Division, 45th Division, and 15th Reserve 
Division. 

Units who p)robably later opposed us when we went through the 30Gth Infantry at La Besace and 
who were identified by prisoners captured by the latter unit were 31st Division at Verpel, November 2d; 
42d Division at Authe, November .3d, and 76th I)i\ision at La Besace, November Sth. 

No later identifications.

culty in the original jumii oil. Twci jiirate pieces attached to the forward battalion were unabU' to .ic|\ .m. e 
for three days. 

(h) The terrain is a wooded series of steep valleys and ridges with mimerous trenches and wire sy.s- 
tenis. No Man's Land and the first Clerman trenches as far as the \alley of the Meurrissons had been 
turned into a series of craters by the artillery fire. .\ heavy fog during the e.]rl\ hours of the attack added 
to the difficulties. 

(i) The enemy, having advance information of our attack, planned onl_\ slight mai liine gun resist- 
ance in his forward zone. This was ineffective because of our artillery pre]iar.ilic;n and tlie poor morale 
of his troops. His artillery fire was also slight, due to either withdrawal of his guns or good c oiiiuer b.iitery 
work of our artillery. The greatest difilculties during the first days were those of the lerr.iin, fog and 
keeping contact over a front of two kilometers with one Ixittalion in the line.

(e) Machine gmis and rifle grenades used, effect unknown. 

(g) Our artillery support was imsatisfactor>- during the period the regiment was held in the Bois 
de la Naza. Heavy underbrush made the location and description of targets difficult and the closeness 
of our line to the enemy (there being orders against any withdrawal from occupied ground) increased the 
difficulties of the artiller>- and caused some "shorts" to fall among our own troops. Pirate pieces had 
been brought up as close as possible for indirect fire, direct fire being impossible in this terrain, but encoun- 
tered the same difficulties as the other artillen.-. 

(i) The enemy's position which was at first thought to consist of scattered machine guns was really 
a continuous line of guns at about 20 meter intervals on the ridge to the north. Their fire grazed the 
crest of the ridge below which was our position, prohibiting its passage and causing heavy losses at every 
attempt. The dense underbrush prevented our locating these positions accurately. The positions were 
improved during the days of the battle. Many patrols attempted to flank the guns but in every instance 
were met by the protecting fire of other guns. 

October 2d. 

(a) 25 meters. 

October 3d. 

(a) 75 meters. 

(e) Stokes mortars were used, but on unlocated targets. It was later found that many rifle grenade 
were duds, some being found actually on the parapet of the enemy machine gun emplacement. .A. small 
number of phosphorous grenades were used. Effect not known. 

(i) The impossibility of advancing in the face of a continuous line of machine guns which had a good 
field of fire was demonstrated. .Attempts to flank the guns were unsuccessful, because as one company 
commander reported, " there is no flank to the damn things." The guns were echeloned in depth and their 
crossfire covered all lines. The enemy's excellent artiller>' observation was demonstrated when they 
destroyed a section of our machine guns just as they were ready to fire. 

October 4th. 

(a) 150 meters. 

(e) 8 three-inch stokes and 4 four-inch stokes firing thermite put up an effective barrage on a front 
of 200 yards. 

(i) The attack failed largely because of the thick woods. The troops were slow in rushing through 
the breach made by the barrage, which was effective in that there was no enemy fire for ten minutes after 
it lifted. Subsequent reconnaissance showed that it reached many of the machine gun positions, but these 
were of such a character that the guns could be hidden in the ground during the fire.

(e) Stokes mortar used against machine guns which were holding up 2d Kn. were ineffective 
because of the 12 rounds carried, 3 were duds and the remainder were used up in registering.

November ist. 

(a) y2 kilo. 

(e) Machine gun fire forced enemy machine guns to retire. 37 mm. used effectively, knocking out 
three machine guns in one instance. 

(f) 4 corps Stokes using thermite were used at the beginning of the attack. EtTect not reported. 

(g) Good artillery support, but the infantry on account of machine gun fire on the Hanks was not 
able to follow it rapidly enough to gain full advantage. 

(h) Open country with small patches of woods broken by deep and steep ravines, with a town and 
mill offering cover to the enemy. 

(i) Failure of company commanders to report frequently and accurately on their positions and the 
conditions was noticeable. This was due in the most flagrant case to the ine.xperience of the officer left 
in command after the C. C. was killed. The advance of one company without support on either flank 
enabled it to drive out resistance which remained in its rear and held up the advance of the company on 
the left. Company L had pushed forward and reached the road at about 10H.30 without the elements 
on either side advancing, being subject to fire from the woods at 99-87, which was in the sector of the 
SOth Division. Fire from trenches at 97.3-87.3 and 97.3-87.4 and from woods 97.5-87.4 and 97.1-87.5, 
had held up M Company and brought enfilade fire on L. .>\bout 14H30, L Company brought fire on these 
woods with which the fire on the trenches under Captain Eaton's direction enabled M to advance to the 
road and join L. 

November 2d. 

(a) 7 kilos. 

(e) During the remainder of the advance until reaching the Meuse River the absence of resistance 
resulted in practically no fire by our troops. 

(g) Artillery fire too long on ChampigneuUe held up the advance of the 2d Bn. after the enemy had 
Rvacuated.

(h) Open rolling countp,- with towns and other buildings. 

(i) The remainder of the advance to the Meuse was chiefly a matter of transportation. Poor roads, 
made worse by rain, cut up by heavy traffic, delayed supplies. The troops suffered chietl\' from loni:;

Our own 37 mm. guns and a gun of the 1st Division drove out enemy machine guns. Rifle fire used on 
enemy fleeing over open ground east of the Meuse. 

(g) No artillery support. 

(h) Open slopes west of the Meuse with towns and buildings — heights on opposite side of the river 
dotted with bushes which the enemy used to the fullest extent for concealment. 

(i) It seems evident that the enemy held back his fire disclosing only a few of his machine guns until 
after the bridge was completed and our troops crossed the river; he then opened hea\^ fire with all arms 
on these positions, continuing for about five hours. His fire was not accurate, dark having come on, but 
the following morning he was able to make the position untenable causing heavy casualties. Our machine 
guns suffered losses by being grou|3ed close to the bridge.

Report of Captain R. G. McKay. HO.'jth M. (;. Co. 

Employment of infantry weapons; 

Machine Guns. — In the first advance, beginning October 26th, througli the .\rgonnc the machine 
guns were attached to infantry companies in the advance with orders to facilitate that advance from the 
actual infantry positions and help in the consolidation of positions taken. Each man in squad attempted 
to carry two boxes of ammunition (11 boxes — 3,168 rounds). Very little effective fire was brought to 
bear on account of wooded country, lack of knowledge of location of infantry and invisibility of targets. 
Guns often left behind owing to speed of infantry advance, but always gained position in time to take up 
defensive in case of counter-attack. 

J7 mms. — Useful in semi-open country used in conjunction with machine guns. 

Stokes Mortars. — Great trouble in getting up ammunition and heavy e(iui|iment. ^^ck■^5 in rapid 
advance. Good in preparatory fire. 

Rifle Grenades. — Lack of experience in use of this weapon spoiled a most useful arm. .\lso no pro- 
vision made in soldier's equipment for carrying grenade. 

Rifle. — Used for anything but firing by ovir infantry. 

Conclusions: 

Machine Guns in Attack. — Machine guns were sent forward with attacking battalions in attacking 
•companies whose objectives were not limited and whose positions in the line were constantly changed by 
orders and conditions of the attack. Machine guns (Hotchkiss) in the attack in open warfare lose their 
offensive qualities. The gun and its equipment is so heavy and difficult to carry that the personnel cannot 
keep up with rapidly advancing infantry without serious loss in ammunition and men. Infantry carriers 
always fail, as they are invariably attached too late to become part of squad. Sections wliich are to go 
forward with attacking battalion in set piece attack should not be called upon to make difficult reliefs 
on nights preceding attack. 

The Hotchkiss in these attacks was trying to do the work which should have been done by the automatic 
rifle, our infantrv lacking any adequate automatic rifle. Owing to its heaviness and lack of mobility it 



248 A HISTORY OF THE 3 05 th INFANTRY 

failed. Light, strong parts capable of being hauled by man power should be part of equipment. Ammu- 
nition boxes badly made and badly conceived. Strap should be on side. 

By crowding this weapon, capable of shooting effectively at 4,000 meters, into the front line, irre- 
placeable casualties were caused in trained personnel. 

Employment of auxiliary' weapons: 

Gas troops. — No results noticed. 

.4 ero/'/aMcs.— Apparently no connection between our aeroplanes and our artillery. Superiority of 
air by weight of numbers alone. 

Artillery S ii p port .—ZxceWenl when prearranged. Poor liaison and observation (viz., aero) made 
quick targets impossible. Forward gun with battalion pushed too far forward for natural use.

OFFICIAL REPORTS FS. SOME WAR-RUMORS* 



EVEN though the war has been over for more The Second Division is second. To quote a new; 

than half a year rumors of war-records con- dispatch which accompanied the official announce- 

tinue to linger around in such profusion and ment from Washington: 

unreUabihty that anything bearing the stamp of an The 77th Disision. <)rg:i 
official govern- 



ment report is 
sure of a wel- 
come. Two gov- 
ernment reports 
concerning the 
records of the 
various Ameri- 
can divisions in 
France h a \' e 
lately been 
issued, and l«>lh 
are calculated to 
settle a number 
of claims and 
counter - claims 
that have been 
more or less dis- 
turbing the peace 
of the country 



The table on this 
page, based < )n 
figures issued b\- 
Gen. Peyton t'. 
March, Chief of 
Staff, represents 
the number of 
kilometers of 
enemy territory 
gained by each 
division. Claims 
have been ad- 
vanced on behalf 
of four different 
divisions for the 
honor of making 
the greatest ad- 
vance. The 
Second Division's 
champion, a 
weekly paper 
called The Indian, 
recently pub- 
lished a series of 

tables, said to have been compiled from official 
figures, according to which the Second was shown 
to lead in kilometers gained, as well as in most 
other particiJars. The 77th Division, which was 
not mentioned in the Indian's table, is now 
officially credited with the greatest number of kilo- 
meters gained by any Afnerican division in France.

E.iiCH DIVISION'S .ADVANCE IN KILOMETERS. 



New York City, 
wliich recently 
returned from 
overseas under 
command of 
General .Alexan- 
der, holds the 
distinction of 
liaving made the 
largest advance 
of any of the 
.\merican troops 
during the fight- 
ing in France. 
Announcement 
to this effect was 
made today by 
Gen. P e V t o n 
C. March, Chief 
of Staff. 

The total gains 
made by the 77th 
Division, General 
March said, ag- 
gregated 77.5 
kilometers, or 
9.14 per cent, of 
the entire ad- 
vance of the 
.American forces. 
Tlie 2d Divi- 
sion, a unit of 
the Regular 
.Army, was 
second with 
sixty kilometers 
to its credit, and 
the 42d, the 
famous Rainbow 
Division, third, 
with fifty - five 
kilometers. 

"The records," 
said General 
March, "show 
that the 77th 
made its greatest advance in the Argonne-Meuse 
battle, going through (and beyond) the Argonne 
Forest for a distance of sixty kilometers from 
September 26 to November 11."

DECORATIONS AND CITATIONS 

THP^ citations which follow gi\e the language in which every one of the 
men concerned was recommended by higher authority for the Distin- 
guished Service Cross. Though a comparative few were awarded the 
coveted medal by the Commander in Chief of the American Expeditionary 
Forces, though a somewhat larger group received official commendation from 
the Division Commander in General Orders, though a third group have as 
yet been cited only in Regimental Orders, they have one and all performed a 
like service for the Country. That a man's name should not have appeared 
in one or another of these lists really means little. That his name does 
aj^pear upon the roster of his unit, in the back of the book, means much; for 
it signifies that he was a soldier of the United States and that he went 
overseas fully expecting, if necessary, to do what any mortal man could do — 
to give his life for his Country.

THE DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CROSS 

HK Distinguished Service Cross has lieen awarded hy (ienerai IVrshing 
to tlie following officers and men of the Three Hundred and I'ifth In- 
fantry for extraordinary heroism in action: 



Arkman, Pvt. Frank, 142943S, Co. L, 30oth Inf.— In the .Argonne, near the Bois de la Naza, a1)out Oct. 
.5, 1918, with three others, went forward in the face of sweeping and continuous machine gun fire 
and enemy grenades, with utter disregard for his personal danger, and with great courage and coolness 
aided in bringing five seriously wounded men to a point where they could be given first aid. 
Ne.xt of kin — Eris Jarshaw, friend, Bellingham, Minn. 

Best, Pvt. Edward G., 1697579, Co. E, 305th Inf.— In the .\rgonne Forest, on the afternoon of Oct. 3, 
1918, in an attack on a series of strong German machine gun nests, this soldier took charge of com- 
pany liaison and personally carried messages to all platoons of his company, exposing himself beyond 
the call of duty to sweeping machine gun fire. 

Ne.xt of kin— Mrs. Belle Preston, mother, 305 West 47th Street, New York, N. Y. 

Blohm, Sgt. John, Co. B, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action near St. Thibaut, Sept. 2, 
1918. From a shell hole in which he had taken shelter while returning from a successful daylight 
patrol across the Vesle River, Sgt. Blohm saw a corporal of his patrol dragging himself through the 
grass and bleeding profusely from a wound in the neck. He unhesitatingly left his shelter, carried 
the corporal behind a tree near the river bank, dressed his wound, and using boughs from a fallen 
tree as an improvised raft, towed the injured man across the river and carried him 200 yards over an 
open field to the American outpost line, all under continuous rifle and machine gun fire. 
Ne.xt of kin— Rudolph Blohm, 4S22 New Utrecht Ave., Brooklyn, N. Y.

THE CROIX DE GUERRE 

On March 31, 11)10, the Belgian Croix de Guerre was awarded to 
Coyne, Pvt. John J., 1698736, Sanitary Detachment, 305th Inf.— During the period from Aug. 12th to

On April 13. 1919, Marechal Petain awarded the French Croix de Guerre to 
Harris, Maj. Duncan G. 305th Inf. — Sustaining a fracture of the shoulder just as his battalion advanced to

DIVISION CITATIONS 

THE following officers and men of the Three Hundred and Fifth Infantry 
were recommended by superior officers for the award of the Distin- 
guished Service Cross and were as a result cited in General Orders of 
the 77th Division for extraordinar}' heroism in action: 

G. U. 27, April 10, 1919. 

Ahner, PFC. George W., 1098984, Hdqtrs. Co., 3U5th Inf.— On or aboul Sept. 2S, 191S, near the cross- 
roads south of Abri du Crochet, Argonne Forest, as a member of a crew advancing with a 37 m, m 
gun while approaching a bend in the road was suddenly enfiladed by a German machine gun. Without 
hesitation and in the face of intense fire, this soldier and the others of his crew assisted the gunner 
in setting up the piece without taking cover, driving out the enemy by their successful manipulation 
of the gun and rendering valuable assistance to the troops they were supporting. 
Ne.xt of kin— George P. .\hner, father, 157 Maple St., Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Anderson, PFC. Edward T., 169G463, Hdqtrs. Co., .305th Inf.— Driver of the Regimental Commander's 
motor car, on Sept. 27, 1918, showed extraordinary courage in taking ammunition to troops in the 
front line at Barricade Pavillion. Hearing that the ammunition supply of the troops on the left flank 
was nearly exhausted and that more ammunition was needed immediately, Pvt. Anderson volunteered 
to take it forward in his motor car. He drove about 8 kilometers over an unfamiliar and shell torn 
road to the front line. While unloading there, under enemy machine gun fire, the radiator and a 
tire of his motor car were punctured by machine gun bullets. 

Next of kin — Mrs. Christiania .Anderson, mother. Fort Salonga, N. Y. 

G. 0. 41, November 23. 1918. 

Ascher, Cpl. Oscar, 1698293, Co. K, 305th Inf.— Who, in the Argonne Forest, on the 6th of Oct., 1918, 
while on special duty at Bn. Hdqtrs., was used as a messenger between an advanced observation 
post of the Battalion Commander and the commanders of two front line companies, making an attack 
at the Bois de la Naza. Four times he carried important messages to the most exposed positions, 
each time under hea\y machine gun fire and with utter disregard of his personal danger, on one ocas- 
sion carrying up a message from a company commander to a platoon sergeant, who was at that moment 
actually in the act of charging the enemy, and not more than 50 yards from the enemy machine guns. 
His personal coolness and courage enabled him to deliver verbal instructions correctly and thereby 
contribute to the success of the attack. 

Next of kin— Mother, Mrs. Sophia Ascher, 69 West 107th St., N. V. C. 

G. 0. 1, January 4, 1919. 

Babbitt, Cpl. George, 2448427, Co. I, 305th Inf.— Before the Aisne, in the early part of September, this 
acting scout sergeant not only performed most efficiently his duties as such, but led a reconnaissance 
patrol into the Aisne Canal north of V'illers en Prayeres and ascertained the general location of the 
enemy outpost line, .'\gain he led an ambuscade patrol north of Villers en Prayeres, and on the day 
of the attack by the Brigade on our right took an observation patrol of three men and himself beyond 
our own right flank into No Man's Land and observed the attack on Revillon and Glennes, sending 
back reports to Bn. Hdqtrs. While on this observation the patrol was heavily shelled by the enemy 
and driven from their position, but this acting sergeant moved his patrol, took up another position, 
and sent in valuable reports. In all this work and during this entire period, this non-commissioned 
oflicer showed repeatedly absolute disregard of his own personal safety and exceptional dc\otion to 
his duties. 

Next of kin— E. H. Babbitt, father, P. O. Dept., Solicitors OflScc, Washington, D. C. 



A HISTORY OF THE 3U5th INFANTRY 



G. O. 31, April 16, 1919, and G. O. 20, March S, 1919. 

Barth, Sgt. Frederick, 1697303, Co. C, 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism in action in Bazoches, on 
the Vesle River, on Sept. 2, 1918. With a patrol of four men and one officer, this soldier (then a PFC.) 
crossed the Vesle with great difticulty, in daylight, and penetrated their lines to reconnoiter their 
positions. There, the patrol was practically surrounded by machine guns, and subjected to intense 
fire. Barth, though wounded, and seemingly with no thought for his own safety, engaged in a running 
fight with the enemy which secured the safe withdrawal of the patrol and brought back valuable 
information. Again, on Nov. 8, 1918, this soldier (then Cpl.) distinguished himself by his extra- 
ordinary heroism when he and one officer alone crossed the Meuse River, between Villers-devant- 
Mouzon and Mouzon, though the east bank of the river and the ridge to the east were known to be 
held by the enemy. They penetrated the enemy's hues to a depth of three kilometers, in the vicinit)' 
of Amblimont, once evading a challenge of the enemy's sentry by Barth's answer. The patrol was 
able to bring back definite information relative to the enemy's occupation of this territory. 
Next of kin— Mrs. Carrie Barth, mother, 21 Cornelia St., Brooklyn, N. Y. 

G. O. 41, November 23, 1918. 

Bayer, Sgt. Fred. H., 2448431, Co. L, 305th Inf.— In the Forest of the Argonne, on the Haute Chevauchee 
Road, on the morning of Sept. 26, 1918, the combat liaison to which he belonged suddenly came 
under a murderous fire from machine guns, trench mortars and steady shrapnel fire. In this critical 
period, by his coolness, by his care of the men of his group, many of whom had never before been 
under fire, and by his utter disregard of his own personal safety, this soldier afforded to the men an 
example of the highest personal courage and exceptional devotion to duty, and in so doing was 
himself severely wounded. 

Next of kin— Mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Bayer, 2010 Arthur Ave., N. V. C. 

G. 0. 14, February 12, 1919. 

Beckmann, Sgt. WiUiam F., 1697424, Co. D, 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism near Villers en Prayeres 
on 7th Sept., 1918, during the advance to the Aisne Canal. During this advance the company came 
under heavy machine gun fire. Sgt. Beckmann showed the greatest bravery and skill in the handling 
of his platoon. On two occasions, despite the heavy fire, he risked his life to bring in wounded men, 
thus exhibiting the highest devotion to duty and to his comrades. 

Next of kin— William F. Beckmann, father, 1401 Jefferson Ave., Brooklyn, N. Y. 

G. O. 41, November 23, 1918, and G. O. 14, February 12, 1919. 

Bernstein, Bn. Sgt.-Maj., 1696981, Hdqtrs. Co., 305th Inf.— Near ViUe Savoye, during the period of Aug. 
12 to 16, 1918, this soldier displayed great devotion to duty at the Bn. P. C, which was frequentl\- 
under heavy shell fire. When the corporal of the orderly section was evacuated, he took over the 
duties of that position in addition to his own and for practically three days and nights went without 
sleep, and to him is due much of the credit for the proper functioning of the Bn. Hdqtrs. during this 
period. Again, in the Aisne Sector, at the Bn. P. C, near Pincon Farm, on Sept. 5, 1918, this soldier 
performed more than his duty by assisting in the care and evacuation of the wounded. 
Next of kin— Father, Jacob B. Bernstein, 1868 Prospect Place, Brooklyn, N. Y. 

G. 0. 10, February 2, 1919. 

Birmingham, Pvt. Joseph F., 1680685, Co. H, 305th Inf.— In the attack on ChampigneuUe, on Nov. 1, 
1918, when his company came under withering machine gun fire, this soldier, with utter disregard of 
his personal safety, helped to carry wounded men from the field, and in so doing showed the utmost 
bravery, devotion to duty and to his comrades. 

Next of kin— Mrs. Anna Higgins, sister, 342 Tenth St., Niagara Falls, N. Y. 

G. O. 10, February 2, 1919. 

Bisignano, Sgt. Vincent, 1697184, Co. B, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism during a patrol action 
in Bazoches the morning of Sept. 2, 1918. This patrol of an officer and four men having crossed the 
Vesle River and entered the town of Bazoches, his skill, alertness and courage in investigating build- 
ings and dugouts to the flank of the patrol contributed directly to the rapid and successful advance 



1)1\ISI()X (IT AT IONS 



of the patrol under exceedingly adverse conditions; while later his vvatclifulness cnal)led his patri)! 
to avoid a much larger German patrol sent out to meet them. Later still he heroically carried batk 
a message under machine gun fire, getting valuable information back to higher conimaiiders more 
quickly than would otherwise have been possible. 

Next of kin— Anthony Bisignano, father, 62o East KiOth St., New York City, N. V. 

G. O. 13, February 12, 1919. 

Blass, Sgt. Walter, 1699302, Co. E, 305th Inf.— For extraord.nary heroism near .Si. Thilmut. on llie night 
of Aug. 29, 1918, when Sgt. Blass was sent out with a detail of 16 men to evacuate 1 wounded men 
from Co. F, who were wounded in the attack of the previous night on Bazoclies. Under murderous 
machine gun fire he led his carrying party over the Vesle. When one-fourth mile from its destina- 
tion, near a flat, the party was caught by a German barrage, and the men scattered. Sgt. Blass 
immediately rounded the men together and it was only through his courage and coolheadednei^s that 
the woimded were carried to safety. Again, in the Forest of the Argonne, on Oct. 3, 1918, Sgt. Blass 
went forward at the head of his platoon in the face of sweeping and continuous machine gun fire and 
enemy grenades, with utter disregard for his personal danger, and with coolness and good judg- 
ment succeeded in reaching his objective, when he was seriously wounded. This act of courage 
was an incentive to the men of his platoon. 

Next of kin— Mrs. Caroline Blass, wife, Box Xo. 6, Ft. Hamilton, Brooklyn, N. V. 

G. 0.31, April 16, 1919. 

Boysen, 2d Lieut. Ernest J., 30.')th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism in action. During tlu- attack on 
ChampigneuUe, on Nov. 1, 191S, when his platoon was held up l)y very stubborn resistance from 
machine guns and snipers, this officer, doing more than his duty, took a rifle, went forward in advance 
of his platoon, and in utter disregard of his personal danger brought down three enemy snipers, 
whereupon the boche machine gunners in this section fled, leaving behind their guns, thus permitting 
the advance of his platoon without serious losses. In accomplishing this, this oflicer showed excep- 
tional skill and daring, devotion to duty and initiative in pushing forward the attack. 
Next of kin — Hans Boysen, father, Jarlan, Iowa. 

G.O. 10, February 2, 1919. 

Bridgeman, Sgt. Joseph (then Pvt.), 2-143704, Co. C, 30r)lli Inf. — For extraordinary heroism during a 
patrol action in Bazoches on the morning of Sept. 2, 1918. This patrol of an olliccr and four men 
having crossed the Vesle River and entered the town of Bazoches, his skill, alertness and courage 
in the investigation of dugouts and buildings contributed directly to the rapid and successful advance 
of this patrol under exceedingly adverse conditions; while later his heroic carrying of a message entirely 
alone back to his own lines placed the valuable information gained at the dispo.sal of the higher com- 
mander much earlier than would otherwise have been possible. 

Next of kin — Tames Bridgeman, father, Robertson. Ferns, Ireland. 

GO. 31, April IG, 1919. 

Brodie, Sgt. Daniel H., 1699GS4, Sup. Co., 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism at Vauxcere on Sept 
7, 1918, during a bombardment of heavy artillery concentrated upon the village street. During 
the shelling, the entire regimental ration train was loaded and ready to proceed, animals were in 
wildest confusion attempting to plunge into a deep ravine at the side of the road to their certain 
death. Sgt. Brodie, with four others, left the shelter of the caves where men had been ordered for 
safety, succeeded through his initiative, good judgment and daring in unhitching many of the animals 
and conducting them to a place of safety. Although four animals were killed in his presence by the 
concussion of one of the bursting high explosive shells, Sgt. Brodie did, beyond the line of his cluty, 
remain in the village streets until the other twenty-eight animals were conducted to a point of safety 
either by him or under his direction, and for the full hour of the bombardment. In this act, he not 
only saved the lives of many animals but preserved the daily issue of rations in such a manner tliat 
they were delivered to front line troops on schedule time. Sgt. Brodie further volunteered, during 
the scarcity of ofBcers, to act as Transport Oflicer, and throughout the entire campaigns of tlic regi-

on ChampigneuUes, being in command of the Signal Platoon, did supervise the operation of, and 
when necessary, did himself operate lines of communication, after he himself was severely wounded, 
thereby setting a valuable example to his men and causing lines of communication to be kept open 
and thereby greatly facilitating the operations of the regiment. Also, in the Baccarat, Vesle and 
Argonne Sectors, by his tireless effort, and by his ability, he did constantly keep lines of communica- 
tion in operation under the most trying of circumstances, exposing himself frequently to shell and 
machine gun fire.

Browne, Captain Duncan H., Chaplain, SOolh Inf. — In the Argonne, during an attack of September 2Clh, 
191S, near the Haute Chevauchee Road, this officer without regard to his own safety personally attended 
more than 10 wounded men close to the firing line, and under sweeping machine gun fire. During the 
night of September 26-27th, 1918, this officer with utter disregard of personal danger and under intense 
shell fire of the enemy, remained with wounded men, otherwise unattended, rendering them efficient 
aid and comfort. During the entire dri\-e through the Argonne Forest this ofiicer repeatedly showed 
his devotion to the men of the command by repeated attendance on wounded men under enemy shell 
fire and at all times exhibited the highest sense of duty, disregard of personal safety, and spirit of self- 
sacrifice.

in charge of the aid station in \'ille Savoye (near Fismes, on the V'eslc). During a heavy bombard- 
ment and gas attack, the roof of the house in which the aid station was located was set afire by enemy

Catalano, Cpl. Sol, 1697260, Co. C, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism during a patrol action in 
Bazoches on the morning of Sept. 2, 1918. One officer and four other men crossed the Vesle River 
entered the town of Bazoches, and reconnoitred the enemy's positions. Having done so, the patrol was 
practically surrounded by the enemy and subjected to heavy fire from machine guns. During the 
heroic withdrawal which followed, Cpl. Catalano single handed drove off a group of six enemy rifle- 
men, being thus largely responsible for the successful withdrawal of the major part of the patrol with 
their valuable information. During this heroic performance he was severely wounded and continued 
fighting until exhausetd by loss of blood.

Clokey, Capt. Gerald T., 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action on or about Oct. 10, 1918, in 
the vicinity of Marcq, at the northeastern edge of the Forest of Argonne. Though no more than 
partially recovered from a serious wound sustained on the Vesle front a short time before, Capt. (then 
2d Lieut.) Clokey had refused sick leave, returning to his regiment just in time to be put in command 
of a company and to enter into an attack. With remarkable dash and vigor, he led his company 
across two kilometers of open ground, under the full observation and heavy shell fire of the enemy. 
The unit on his right was held up. Quickly grasping the situation which threatened to leave his 
flank exposed, he extended his front so as to enter and hold the town of Marcq, going out of the regi- 
mental sector to do this, and this in spite of more than ordinary discouragements. With utter dis- 
regard for his personal safety, by virtue of his own personal energy, activity and qualities of leadership, 
he gallantly brought his men through a ditficult advance with a minimum of losses, through the very 
positions of a disorganized unit, established his line upon the designated objective west of Marcq, 
and pushed his outposts to the River Aire.

explosion- but, instead of seeking lus own safety, this soldier, with utter disregard of his personal

Lieut Fox detected. He not only facilitated the building of the bridge by materially suppressing this 
fire but as soon as the stream was spanned, went after the gun, of his own volition and his own initia- 
tive though realizing fully the danger of that undertaking. His patrol of the 3d Bn. were the first troops 
of the 77th Div. to gain a foothold on the eastern bank of the Meuse. The enemy machine gun post was

between the Vesle and the Aisnc rivers, on Sept. 7, 1918, during a terrific enemy artillery bombard- 
ment concentrated on the village street. When the shelling started the entire regimental train was 
loaded and waiting to proceed; animals were thrown into the wildest confusion, attempting to plunge 
to their certain death down a nearby embankment. Wag. Goodwin with four other men voluntarily 
left the cave where all men had been ordered for safety, and succeeded througli his initiative, good 
judgment and daring in unhitching many of the animals and conducting them to a point of safety. 
Four animals were killed in his presence by the concussion of one of the high explosive shells and flying 
shrapnel, but Wag. Goodwin, beyond the call of duty and with utter disregard for his own personal 
safety, remained in the open under the shelling until the twenty -eight remaining animals were con- 
ducted to a place of safety, which required the utmost daring, initiative and coohiess. In this act he 
not only saved the lives of many animals, but assisted in preserving the entire ration issue for delivery 
to front line troops. On other occasions throughout the regimental campaigns on the Aisne and the 
Argonne fronts, he volunteered and acted as Transport Officer, assuming the responsibilities of such 
on account of the shortage of ofTicers, and did at all times display a marked courage, devotion to duty

made a valuable personal reconnaissance under shell and machine gun fire, of a position to be taken 
over by his battalion. He then guided a company of the battalion to that new position over most 
difficult ground. On or about the 15th of .\ugust, when his battalion was awaiting relief by a battalion 
of another regiment, Capt (then 1st Lieut.) Gray went out despite a heavy concentration of gas to 
locate and guide into position the relieving unit: in the heavy gas and H-E bombardment they had 
become somewhat broken up and had lost their way in the darkness. It was due solely to this officer's 
courage and ability that the relief was accomplished that night, .•\gain, during the drive through the

in action. During the rehef of the 2d Bn., 305th Inf., on the night of Aug. 1.5-16, 1918, the enemy 
put over a heavy concentration of gas and high e.xplosive shells. Lieut. Mendelson and three enlisted 
men were the last to leave the town, and proceeding slowly along the road they searched all the dug- 
outs and funk holes, picking up wounded and gassed men. Finding it impossible to see with gas masks 
adjusted, they removed the masks from their eyes, and with only mouth pieces and nose clips adjusted, 
continued their work, evacuated twelve men, wounded and gassed, who would otherwise have re- 
mained there the entire night, some of whom would certainly have been killed by shells or overcome 
by gas before that time. Only one ambulance being available, it took over three hours to finish the 
work of evacuating these men. Though exhausted from work and lack of sleep, Lieut. Mendelson 
then proceeded to the first aid station of the 3d Bn., 305th Inf., and assisted in evacuating and treating 
hundreds of men who had been gassed in Ville Savoye the night before, .^fter this work was over, he 
persisted in refusing hospital treatment, as he was tempoiarily the only medical officer with this 
battalion, the regular detachment of medical officers and troops attached to the 3d Bn. having been 
gassed and evacuated to the hospital. Lieut. Mendelson was especially affected by the gas of the 
previous night, due to an eye ailment w^hich necessitates his wearing spectacles. His calmness and 
heroism were a source of inspiration to his men and to the troops with whom he came in contact.

Roach, Pvt. Michael, 1678980, Co. D, 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism near Villers-en-Prayeres 
on 7th of Sept., 1918, during the advance to .Visne Canal. During this advance Pvt. Roach, under 
violent machine gun fire, with great intrepidity and daring, went forward alone with an automatic 
rfle and took up an advantageous position from which he gave most effective fire until his rifle was 
rendered unserviceable by the enemy, thereby showing initiative, good judgment, and disregard 
of his personal safety and devotion to duty.

Rogal.sky, 1st Lieut. Frederick W., 3d Bn. Hdqtrs., 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism on Nov. 5, 
1918, at Autrecourt. This officer, the scout officer of his battalion, alone, made a reconnaissance 
on horseback from the town of Autrecourt to Villers-devant-Mouzon, a distance of one and one-half 
kilometers along the bank of the Meuse River in plain view of the strong enemy position of .^mbUmont, 
obtained the information required by his Colonel and returned by the same route. The road over 
which he had to go was under heavy machme gun fire and minenwerfer fire just before this recon- 
naissance and as soon thereafter as the infantry appeared. He was fully aware of the fact that he 
was observed by the enemy and although he could see the enemy with the naked eye, continued and 
accomplished his mission.

Schneider, 1st Lieut. Benjamin (deceased), 30.5th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in the Argonne Forest, 
when the advance of the battalion was held up by the enemy at the Bois de la Naza, on Oct. 5, 1918, 
by his utter disregard for his personal danger, Lieut. Schneider was a constant source of encourage- 
ment to his men and instilled them with the courage which enabled them to overcome the enemy 
resistance. His company commander was evacuated, wounded on Oct. 5, 1918, and Lieut. Schneider 
took command. He was gallantly leading his company Nov. 1, 1918, against the strongly held town 
of ChampigneuUe when he was killed by a machine gun bullet.

Schwarz, Sgt. Fred. R., 1697863, Co. G, 305th Inf.— Who, during the advance in the Argonne, on the 
afternoon of Oct. 3, 1918, went forward from the support position to the aid of wounded comrades, 
dressing their wounds and sending them to the rear while exposing himself with utter disregard of 
personal danger to the hottest machine gun fire of the enemy. By his coolness and bravery he not only 
saved the lives of many of his comrades, but gave to other men of his company a splendid example of 
courage under fire.

Shagaom, Cpl. Louis, 1697434, Co. D, 30oth Inf.— In the advance to the Aisne on Sept. 6, 1918, the half 
platoon which he was leading was stopped by terrific enemy machine gun fire. This corporal, with 
absolute coolness and good judgment, and with total disregard for his personal safety, directed the 
movement of his men, thereby instilling in them the necessary confidence, and when one of them 
was wounded, himself took the man's rifle and personally fired all available V. B.'s with exxellent 
elTcct.

■Shaw, Capt. John Scranton (deceased), 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action on Nov. 7, 1918 
near Villers-devant-Mouzon, on the Meuse, where the 1st Bn., 305th Inf., was in the act of crossing to 
the east bank of the river. Capt. Shaw (then 1st Lieut, and Adj. of the Bn.) had already distinguished 
himself throughout all the operations of his regiment, particularly during the gruelling ad\'ance through 
the Argonne and then to the Meuse. Here the battalion, greatly reduced in numbers and crippled 
for lack of officers, furnished a covering party for the construction of the foot bridge in a storm of 
lead and high explosive; for the Germans from their positions near Amblimont had perfect observa- 
tion of the bridge and poured down upon our troops an incessant and murderous fire. Upon com- 
pletion of the bridge, A Co., without officers, hastened to cross. Both the Major of the battalion 
and Capt. Shaw had been with their troops constantly, personally directing their fire, without thought 
of danger. Against the caution of Major Sloane to the effect that Shaw might just as well remain 
near what was called Battalion Headquarters while the Major himself took the troops across, Shaw 
repUed that every officer they had was needed there in the open. He remained, encouraging the troops 
to greater activity and heartening them in their work, and presently, in response to a call from his 
commanding officer, unhesitatingly dashed across an area which was constantly swept by machine 
gun fire. He was mortally wounded in so doing. His extraordinary heroism during that afternoon, 
and his courage after being wounded — for he continuously remonstrated with the men who volun- 
teered to carry him back to the aid station — did much to make the crossing of the Meuse possible.

Sheehy, Sgt. George E., UW71-JI), Co. B, 3().jth Inf.— For e.xtraordinary heroism in the Forest of the Argonne 
in the vieinity of Pont I'Aune, on or about the 2Sth of Sept., 1918. After his company had advanred 
against a line of enemy machine guns treacherously placed in the concealing brush, his platoon \vas 
somewhat scattered ard apart from the rest of the company, by reason of the difiiculties of the heavily 
wooded terrain. In the face of heavy machine gun fire, he kept his platoon at the position of farthest 
advance, and without consideration for his own safety, reorganized the scattered combat groups, 
reorganized his platoon, and, by repeated attacks which he led heroically in person, succeeded 
in driving the enemy from his position. This new position he effectually reorganized, and then by 
personal reconnaissance picked up scattered units of other platoons of his company, filled up his 
depleted ranks with these reinforcements and thus maintained his position throughout the night, 
despite a searching and almost continuous machine gun fire. During all this time, he maintained 
liaison with his Battalion Headcjuarters, and sent back much valuable information. In this action 
he displayed e.xceptional initiative, entire disregard for his personal safety and especial devotion to 
duty.

noon of Nov. 7, 1918, near X'illers-devant-Jluzon. This ofhcer, who was in command of the 1st Bn., 
30.')th Inf., furnished the covering party for tlic construction of the bridge across the Meuse River at 
that point, which was under obser\-ation by the Germans, constantly under bombardment and under 
machine gun fire. Maj. Sloane personally went about among his troops, directing the fire and encour- 
aging them to greater efforts. His adjutant was killed by a machine gun bullet, close by. Upon 
completion of the bridge, he personally supervised the crossing — still under fire — and the establishing 
of a position on the eastern bank of the river by two platoons of Co. ,\ which, excepting a patrol of 
Co. K, 305th Inf., were the first units of the 77th Division to gain a foothold on the further bank ot 
the Meuse. By his stirring example and utter disregard of personal danger, he maintained the morale 
of his men and held this position under the most trying circumstances.

Slocum, Jr., Capt. Frank A., Co. B, 305th Inf. — For exceptionally meritorious service in the Bois de la 
Naza, Argonne Forest, on Oct. 1, 1918. During the initial advance to this point, Co. D, in close 
support of which Capt. Slocum's company (he was then 1st Lieut., in command of Co. B) was ad- 
vancing, came under intense shell fire with such heavy casualties that a slight retirement seemed 
necessary. Its commanding officer, and other officers were wounded. Capt. (then 1st Lieut.) Slocum, 
grasped the situation with great quickness and though himself wounded refused to be evacuated; 
and exposing himself with utter disreagrd for his personal safety, made a hurried disposition of the 
men of both companies so that the line remained intact. Despite his wound, which was painful, 
he continued in command until the attack was completed some few days after, and then reluctantly 
consented to be taken to the rear. His action exhibited the highest devotion to duty.

Regiments at and to the east of St. Juvin on the .Vire River, going up into the front line and remaining 
there without shelter under severe machine gun, shell and gas shell fire for two nights and one day, 
while the positions were consohdated and the relief of the Brigade effecled. During this time he was

constantly under bombardment (he had a hole torn in his coat by a shell fragment), but carried out 
his mission from this exposed position in utter disregard of his personal safety and in spite of advice 
to seek shelter. During the advance from the \'esle to the Aisne, and throughout the Argonne cam- 
paign, this officer, by his presence in the forward lines, was ever an example and an inspiration to the

detachment for the construction of a foot bridge across the Meuse, being subjected to the most violent 
shell fire and machine gun fire. When the only ofiicer who remained with the company was rendered 
unfit for duty, this non-commissioned officer by his coolness and courage, his abiUty and qualities of 
leadership, inspired his men with new confidence, reorganized the company under fire and placed two 
platoons in position on the east bank of the Mouse,

Bois de la Naza, Argonne Forest, the first aid station was established about fifty yards behind the front 
fines where enen.y projectiles were bursting all about. Here, this soldier, with t wo others, worked 
untiringly in the open, and gave the surgeons valuable assistance, their coolness and devotion to duty 
saving several lives, at the risk of their own. Greatly due to his efforts, 160 cases were evacuated in 
a few hours during and immediately following a series of bloody attacks. On Nov. 4, 1918, the enemy 
heavily shelled our positions along a railroad west of St' Pierremont. Sgt. Southworth was in the

305th Inf. Responding to the call of his regimental chaplain, Pvt. Stemm did, under hea\y shell 
fire, at a time when the morale of our troops had suffered greatly from hardship and very heavy losses, 
assist in the burial of companions who had been killed by shell fire, and continued that assistance 
until the burial had been completed, thereby exhibiting both high personal courage and proper respect 
for the country's dead. His indifference toward danger contributed in no small degree to the en- 
couragement of the troops. .'Xgain, on Nov. 8, 1918, at .Autrecourt, close to the Meuse River, this 
soldier performed a like ser\ice for a lieutenant and six soldiers, under full observation of the enemy 
and with shells falhng close to the place of burial.

gun ammunition into St. Thibaut, when they were caught in a barrage and the .sergeant of the detail 
wounded. Utterly disregarding his own danger, he administered first aid to the wounded man, brought 
him to a place of safety, and did not himself take cover until he had checked up every man to ascertain 
whether or not he had sufficient protection. The ammunition was delivered, against the advice of 
Capt. Roelker, 306th M. G. Bn., to the various machine gun posts. Again, on Sept. 2(ith, by his 
devotion to duty, his bravery and self-sacrifice, Lieut. Thompson greatly encouraged his men in the 
attack. In the course of the advance, after taking ten German prisoners, Lieut. Thompson was 
severely wounded in the head by a shell fragment; but after regaining consciousness, refused assistance, 
was careful to transmit all orders and information to the second in command, and then, tliough weak 
from loss of blood, brought in the prisoners single handed. Throughout all experiences, Lieut. 
Thompson's courage and personality have been a constant inspiration and incentive to the coiTunarul.

The following officers and men of this Regiment are hereby com- 
mended for meritorious service: 

Anderson, Pvt. Archibald 0., 1G97600, Co. K, 305lh Inf.— In the attack on ChampigneuUe on Nov. 1, 
1918, this soldier displayed the highest form of courage while acting in liaison with the troops of the 
78th Division on our left. To maintain communication between the front line of the two Divisions 
he was obliged continuously to travel over a course more than a kilometer in length, which was under

Ne.xt of kin— Mrs. R. Anderson, mother, 189 Fifteenth St., Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Berdahl, Tvt. Henry T., 2787763, Co. L, 305th Inf. (deceased) — For e.xtraordinary heroism in action in 
the Bois de la Naza, Argonne Forest, on or about Oct. 3, 1918. In the first days of the advance into 
this portion of the Forest, our progress was held up by a line of enemy machine guns so effectively 
concealed in the dense underbrush that our troops could advance right up to the enemy positions 
before either our troops or those of the enemy were aware of the other. A raking machine gun fire 
constantly swept our positions, though apparently not always aimed at definite targets. Knowing 
fully the danger of the undertaking, Pvt. Berdahl advanced in the face of a continuous machine gun 
fire for the purpose of placing his automatic rifle in position to drive out a supposed enemy nest. 
While in the act of creeping forward, he was mortally wounded.

line companies. On the same date and on .\ugust 29th Pvt. Bedard carried messages under heavy 
machine gun and shell fire from the village of St. Thibaut to an outpost platoon, crossing an open field

Cardona, Pvt. Matthew, 2338110, Hdqrs Co., 305th— Inf.— Phis soldier has served as my personal orderly 
Since May 6, 1918. During the defensive operations in the vicinity of Chateau-Thierry (Marne) 
France, the 1st Bn., 4th Inf., under my command, held Hill 204 from June 13 to June 18, 1918. 
Owing to the exposed condition of this position and the fact that no trenches or dugouts had been con- 
structed, it was impossible to prepare food at the Bn. Hdqrs. for myself and my officers and Pvt . Cardona 
volunteered to perform this work in the nearby town of Essomes-sur-Marne and carried on in this 
town during the entire time of our service there. This town and the reverse slopes of Hill 204 were 
severely shelled several times each day and night by the enemy with heavy high explosive and gas 
shells and the town was constantly under machine gun fire. Although under constant danger, I'vt. 
Cardona worked on cheerfully and without complaint or interruption and by his labors contributed 
greatly to the comfort and security of myself and my officers and, by his utter fearlessness set a fine 
example to his fellow soldiers. Furthermore, during this period, this soldier acted as runner, guide 
and stretcher bearer in difficult and dangerous situations, thereby adding to his credit and the efficiency 
of the battalion. Later, during my service as Provost Marshal, First .Xrmy Corps, A.E.F"., from July 
5 to November 8, 1918, Pvt. Cardona performed many acts of self-sacrifice and bravery. .At and 
in the vicinity of Epeau.x-Bezeau, Mouchton Chateau, Fere-en-Tardenois, Nesles Woods, Mareuil- 
en-Dole, Sezarais, Triacourt, Rarecourt, Clement-en-.\rgonne and Varennes, this soldier was 
frequently under fire, and always acted in a fearless and soldierly manner and to the honor of his 
uniform. I was an eye witness to most of his acts as set forth above. No other persons are presint 
or available at this time who are cognizant of the above matters.

with a Chauchat ,\utomatic Rifle to locate and silence German machine guns which were inflicting 
casualties upon Co. D, 305th Inf., in the front line. Fully conscious of their danger Sgt. Conboy 
and his companions advanced in the face of increased enemy fire, which was evidently the result of 
their being observed, and by which one of the party was wounded, across an open field toward the 
German positions. They advanced about a hundred yards practically without cover of any sort for 
the terrain was very flat, and setting up their automatic very near the enemy, silenced the fire and 
brought back information concerning the enemy outposts which enabled us to lay down an effective 
trench mortar barrage.

Coorman, PFC. Harry J., 1698737, Sanitary Detachment, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action. 
On the evening of .\ug. 13, 1918, Pvt. Coorman answered a call for first aid on a very steep hill on the 
forward limits of St. Thibaut, where a company of the .304th JI. G. Bn. was estabUshed. Though 
the enemy fire was heavy and the entire town constantly lit up by enemy flares which showed up 
everj-thing clearly, Pvt. Coorman with Pvt. Liebman ran to where the wounded men lay. In order 
to save time, they left the road which led around the hill for a distance of one mile and chmbed up 
the face of the hill bearing toward the enemy, the steepness of which required holding on to the trees 
and shrubs. They found a sergeant and a private severely wounded, carefully brought both down 
the steep hill on improvised litters and carried them in safety to the Aid Post in St. Thibaut. Coorman 
climbed the hill twice, to perform this duty. On the night of Aug. 15, 1918, during the relief of the 
2d Bn., the enemy put over a heavy concentration of gas and high explosive. Pvt. Coorman and 
two others were last to leave the town. Proceeding slowly along the road, they searched all the dug- 
outs and funk holes, picking up wounded and gassed men. It was impossible to see with gas masks 
on, due to the heavy smoke. With just the mouth piece and nose clip adjusted, they continued their 
work, gathering together twelve wounded and gassed men who otherwise would have in all probability 
remained thereuntil the next day. As only one ambulance was available, it was necessary for Coor- 
man to lie on the road for three hours until all the wounded could be evacuated. It took four trips 
to and from Cherry-Chartreuve to accomplish this. 

Though exhausted from this work and lack of sleep, Coorman and the other two proceeded to 
the station of the 3d Bn., 305th Inf., at noon Aug. 16, 1918, and assisted in evacuating and treating 
the many men who had been gassed in Ville Savoye the night before. .After their work was over, 
they persisted in refusing hospital treatment as they were temporarily the only Sanitary Corps men 
with the 3d Bn. Their extraordinary heroism was a great encouragement to the troops.

On Oct. 3, 1918, in the Bois de la Naza, the Aid Post was established about oO yards behind (he 
front lines where enemy projectiles were bursting all about. Here P\-t. Coorman with two oihirs 
worked untiringly in the open, and gave the .surgeons valuable assistance, their coolness and <le\otioM 
to duty saving several lives, at the risk of their own. About 100 men were evacuated in a few hours, 
being greatly due to Coorman's efforts.

Garner, Capt. Robert L., operation officer, 305th Inf.— For exceptional bravery, devotion to his Regiment, 
and high sense of duty, during the Argonne attack, and especially on the 14 and 15 of October, 
1918, during which time he accomplished continuously dangerous reconnaissance with extraordinary 
heroism and disdain of danger. On the 14 of October, he was sent to act as obser\'er for the St. Juvin 
attack, and remained on the hill between Marcq and St. Juvin in the only obser\'ation post affording 
good obser\-ation, but which for this reason was shelled without interruption during the three hours 
the observation lasted. On the morning of the 15, he was sent to get information about the front 
line which was at that time counter-attacked and heavily shelled. He spent four hours under this 
violent fire, gathering information from one end of the line to the other.

Giordano, Pvt. Fortunato, 1GS2927, Sanitary Detachment, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in 
action. During the entire day of Aug. 13, 1918, and until midnight, the enemy shelled the 
town of St. Thibaut, on the Vesle, where the 2d Bn., 305th Inf., held the line. Toward noon, in 
answer to a call for first aid, Pvt. Giordano voluntarily left the aid post to render assistance to two 
men who had been hit by shrapnel. Though the road was being swept by shell fire and machine gun 
fire, Pvt. Giordano did his utmost to save the men who died shortly after he had reached them. De- 
spite the intense shell lire, and the extreme danger of his position, his sense of duty was so strong 
that he did not seek cover until he had plainly tagged the men, which necessitated making a search 
of their clothing inasmuch as the identification tags were missing. 

During the relief of the battalion on the night of Aug. 15, 1918, the enemy put over a heavy 
concentration of gas and high explosive. Pvt. Giordano and two others were last to leave the town. 
Proceeding slowly along the road, they searched all the dugouts and funk holes, picking up wounded 
and gassed men. It was impossible to see with gas masks on, due to the heavy smoke. With just 
the mouthpiece and nose clip adjusted, they continued their work, gathering together twch'e wounded 
and gassed men who otherwise would have, in all probability, remained there until the next day. 
As only one ambulance was available, it was necessary to remain on the road for three liours until 
all the wounded could be evacuated. It took four trips to and from Ghcrry-Charlrcuvc to accom- 
plish this. 

Though exhausted from this work and lack of sleep, Giordano and the other two men of the 
detachment proceeded to the station of the 3d Bn., 305th Inf., at noon, .\ug. 16, 1918, and assisted in 
evacuating and treating the many men who had been gassed in Ville Savoye the night before. After 
their work was over, they persisted in refusing hospital treatment as they were temporarily the only 
Sanitary Detachment men with the 3d Bn. Their extraordinary heroism was a great encouragement to

formance of its duty this patrol came under exceptionally heavy enemy shell and machine gun fire. 
This officer did, without regard for personal safety, afford a splendid example of courage and devotion

throughout the advance.

Grande, Wgnr. Francisco, 1G96712, Sup. Co., 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism at a crossroads south 
of Cornay, in the .Vrgonnc Forest, on the morning of Oct. 15, liJlS, when driving four animals 
of a Supply Company wagon train. A bombardment of enemy artillery was concentrated on the 
wagon train. Wgnr. Grande leaped from the General Service wagon attached to the animals and slood 
holding the leading team. During the bombardment, one man was killed, one seriously wounded, 
six animals killed and three wounded, all within sight of Wgnr. Grande. His own wagon was struck 
and shattered, but he remained with h4s team; one of the animals he held was struck and, pulling the 
other dead animal with him, dragged Grande for a distance of fifty feet toward an eighty-foot em- 
bankment. Grande did not relinquish his grasp on the lines, the wounded horse broke completely 
away, but Grande remained on the road until he had secured the three animals, and not until then 
did he seek cover. In so doing he displayed an utter disregard for his personal safety, and showed 
a devotion to duly of the highest calibre, exercised with coolness and initiative at a time when the 
shortage of animals in Ihc company was extremely serious.

2M,s A HISTORY OF THE 305th INFANTRY 

Hever, 1st Lieut. William J., 30uth Inf. — When commanding Co. F, 305th Inf., Lieut. Haver exhibited 
great personal courage and good leadership from the 2C)th of Sept. until he met his death, leading 
his company in an attack on a strong German position in the Bois de la Naza on Oct. 3, 191S. When 
the attack was ordered, Lieut. Hever advanced with the first wave of his men, setting a splendid 
e.xample of courage and daring in a situation in which utter disregard of personal safety was necessary 
for successful leadership.

Hirschberger, Pvt. Louis, 1697639, E. Company, 305th Inf— On Nov. 1, 191S, during the early hours of the

Reahzing fully the dangers of the undertaking, he volunteered to carry a message under heavy machine 
gun fire and succeeded in doing so, thereby greatly facilitating the advance, although a machine gun 
gun bullet had pierced his helmet.

Howard, Wgnr. Thomas J., 1696776, Sup. Co., 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism at Vauxcer^ on 
Sept. 7, 1918, during a bombardment of heavy artillery fire concentrated upon the main street in 
the village. During the shelling, the entire regimental ration train was loaded and ready to proceed. 
The frightened animals were in wildest confusion, attempting to plimge down a steep embankment 
at the side of the road which would have meant their certain death. Wgnr. Howard, with four other 
men, voluntarily left the shelter of the caves where all men had been ordered for safety, and succeeded 
through his own initiative, good judgment and daring in unhitching many of the animals and conducting 
them to a place of safel}-. Four animals were killed in his presence by the concussion of one of the 
high explosive shells and flying shrapnel, but Wgnr. Howard, beyond the line of duty and with an 
utter disregard for his own personal safety, remained in the open under the shelling until the twenty- 
eight remaining animals were conducted to a place of safety, a deed which required the utmost coolness 
and courage. By so doing, he not only saved the lives of many animals, but preser\-ed the daily 
issue of rations so that they were delivered to the front line troops on schedule time. On another 
occasion at Vauxcer^' the ration transport, lined up on the road in front of Regimental Headquarters, 
was heavily shelled about dusk. At least one animal was mortally wounded and several injured by 
the bursting shells. During the bombardment, Wgnr. Howard ran out to the teams, unhitched a 
number of the animals and led them to a point of safety.

Poire, Henri, formerly Lieut., Sth Battalion, Chasseurs a Pied, French .\imy, atlaiheil to the 30.Jth Inf. - 
For exceptionally meritorious service to the Government in connection with operations against an 
armed enemy of the United States. Lieut. Poire was one of a party of foreign olTicers who arrived 
in the United States in the early Fall of 1917. He was assigned for duty to the '2d Plattsburg Ofhcers' 
Training Camp. At the completion of this course, he was sent to Camp Upton where he served as 
ground lecturer and instructor at the OlTicers' Training School. On the arrival of the 77th Division 
in France he was attached to the 30oth Inf., where he served until the regiment returned to the training 
areas after the signing of the .\rmistice. He was then attached to and remained with the (JGlh Inf. 
Brigade imtil his demobilization. 

Lieut. Poire has rendered unbounded service to the United States both as an instruitor in the 
camps and as a fighter with the troops in action. During tlie training camp and c antonment periods 
he was of inestimable value to the olTicers not only because of his positive knowledge of ai tual war- 
fare, which knowledge was not confined to trench warfare, but through his example as an enthusi.i'-tic 
an<l tireless worker. 

In action, his aid was invaluable and his example remarkable. He worked always twenty hours 
of the twenty-four, and in times of stress his personal comfort was utterly disregarded. His mind 
was constantly active and fertile in suggestion and helpful advice. His courage was of the finest. 
Constantly, and of his own volition in his endeavor to get first-hand information, he visited the most 
advanced elements of the front line. In front of the Aisne Canal he made a daylight patrol into 
No Man's Land which was a model of efiicient, energetic and expeditious reconnaissance. 

Lieut. Poire brought to us a spirit of devotion to duty, and to the Country a fund of knowledge 
and a will to work and conquor deserving of the highest award.

,^04 A HISTORY OF THE 305 th INFAxNTRY 

Ralston, Pvt. Walter, 1677481, Co. D, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism near the village of Vau.xcere, 
France, between the Yesle and the Aisne Rivers, on Sept. 1, 1918, while on duty as a brakeman for 
the ration limber of his company. On that afternoon the ration train, while imder enemy observa- 
tion and before various headquarters had been established by the advancing troops, had caught up 
with the moving infantry and was awaiting orders. Pvt. Ralston, beyond the call of duty, volun- 
teered to locate the Regimental Commander, which he succeeded in doing after three unsuccessful 
trips involving a journey of eight kilometers under intermittent artillery fire. He returned with 
valuable information to the effect that scouts should proceed to locate various battalion headquarters. 
As Ralston had procured an approximate map location of the 1st Bn. P. C, he asked permission to 
mount the coproral's horse and lead that battalion train forward at darkness, while the sergeant and 
corporal were scouting for the rest of the regiment. His request was granted to save time and he 
set forth without a guide and along badly shelled roads. Inadvertently he took a wrong road that 
brought him back to his starting point after two hours riding, but realizing his error he was still deter- 
mined to reach his destination, and he again set out and delivered the complete train of rations to 
his battalion, not reaching the picket lines until dawn, that having been the second night out without 
sleep or rest. His scouting in the afternoon and his leadership throughout the night, all beyond the 
call of duty, was done with initiative, daring and coolness that showed the highest of devotion to 
duty in a most e.xemplary manner.

the front, by enemy artillery. On the night of Sept. 13, 1918, Wgnr. James Rein was sent to Co. F 
with the next day's rations, and was ordered to pick up and bring back any surplus ammunition or 
reserve rations they might have. He left Vauxcere at 8 p.m. and proceeded alone as far as the cross- 
roads about two kilometers from his destination where he was shelled by enemy high explosives. 
Wgnr. Rein heroically stayed by his team after his riding horse had been shot from under him and 
the other animal severely wounded. With an utter disregard for his own personal safety, he un- 
hitched the team and pushed the limber off to the side of the road out of the shell fire. After doing 
all in his power for the one horse, he found that it was impossible to go ahead with only one animal. 
Paying no attention to the enemy shells which were exploding at brief intervals on this part of the 
road, he walked his other wounded animal back to VauxceriJ and reported to Regtl. Sup. Sgt. Cumming, 
explaining the facts, and requesting two new animals so that he could go back and deliver the rations. 
In this act Wgnr. Rein not only saved the life of one horse by bringing the animal back where it could 
be treated, but preserved the rations by pushing them off the road and out of the danger zone. On 
other occasions throughout the regimental campaigns on the .Msnc and .■\rgonnc fionts, he acted as 
a driver in the ammunition train, displaying at all times extraordinary courage and daring.

7, 1918, during a bombardment of heavy artillery hre concentrated upon the main street in the village. 
During the shelling, the entire regimental ration train was loaded and ready to proceed. The fright- 
ened animals were in wildest confusion, attempting to plunge into a deep ravine by the side of the 
road which would have meant their certain death. Cpl. Santi, with four other men voluntarily left 
the shelter of the caves where they had been ordered for safety, and succeeded through his own 
initiative, daring and good judgment, in unhitching many of the animals and conducting them to a 
place of safety. Four animals were killed in his presence by the concussion of one of the high explosive 
shells and flying shrapnel, but Cpl. Santi, beyond the line of duty and with utter disregard for his 
own personal safety, remained in the open under the sheUing imtil the twenty-eight remaining animals 
were conducted to a place of safety either by him or under his supervision, liy doing this, he not 
only saved the lives of many animals, but preserved the daily issue of rations so that they were delivered 
to front line troops at the appointed time. On another occasion the ration train was parked all night 
in an apple orchard on a hill just south of Cornay on the ^rgonne front. Cpl. Santi was in charge 
of the transport and was awaiting orders to go forward. At 4 a.m. on the morning of Oct. 15, 191S, 
the enemy started shelling the crest of the hill and one of the high explosives burst over the train, 
killing four horses and wounding several others. Cpl. Santi was helping the men to hold and ijuiet 
the frightened animals and trying to keep his train in order when a second shell exploded close by, 
wounding him so severely that he died a few days later from his injuries.

danger, this soldier moved voluntarily to the aid of two wounded and helpless men, whose funk hole 
had received a direct hit. Braving the almost continuous shell fire which fell upon this spot, he 
rendered efficient first aid and moved the two men to a less dangerous position.

throughout the bloody attacks which characterized five days of hard fighting, this soldier when not 
carrying messages assisted in bearing the wounded from the outpost line. On Nov. 1, in an open posi- 
tion where his company came under intense machine gun fire, this runner made his way from shell 
hole to shell hole, though sniped at continuously, and thus back to the battalion commander, with an 
important message.

periods that companies of his battalion were in the line, whether in the Baccarat Sector, on the Vesle 
and Aisne, in the .'\rgonne, or on the Meuse, with utter disregard for danger, no matter how tired 
he was or how difficult the mission given him, he ethciently maintamed communication or sought

Stamm, Sgt. Jolin, 1097812, M. G Co., 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism during the advance to 
the Vesle, near Pincon Farm, on Sep 5th, while the trench in which his platoon was stationed was 
being gradually blown to pieces by intense shell fire, this sergeant, with the utmost coolness and 
bravery, went among the men in the trench and inspired confidence in them, and helped to remove 
wounded men, with utter disregard for his personal safety and with a fine devotion to his duty and 
to his wounded comrades.

positions, immediately after he had returned with a patrol which had been ambushed and all of the mem- 
bers e.xcept himself wounded. Although forced to advance through dense undergrowth in the face of 
violent machine gun fire, and being once driven off by a hand grenade barrage, .Sgt. Stokes continued 
his efforts until he had located the enemy line, and brought back the information to his Company Com- 
mander. He was killed on the ridge east of St. Juvin, on the morning of October 15, while 
attempting to organize his platoon for an ordered attack.

the highest courage and great devotion to duty, in reforming into a defensive hne small groui)s of

service to his company enal)led it again to build up a line that was for some hours in danger of being 
broken, and enabled it to continue ils offensive on the following day. Pvt. Swezey moved up and 
down the line under extremely heavy machine gun and trench mortar fire, during this operation

Wahlstedt, Mech. Harold (deceased), 1714365, Co. K, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action. 
Mech. Wahlstedt, whenever his company went into action performed the arduous duties of company 
runner, repeatedly volimteering to undertake dangerous missions. Because of his untiring energy 
and devotion to duty he was of inestimable value to his company commander in this capacity. Yet 
he felt that he ought more completely to share with his fellows the dangers of the firing line. On 
Oct. 1, 1918, in the Bois de la Naza, he volunteered to accompany a patrol to engage enemy machine 
guns concealed in the brush, although this was clearly outside of his regular duties and although he 
fully realized the dangers of the undertaking. The brush in this portion of the forest was of such a 
density that even at fifteen yards in some places neither the attackers nor the defenders could dbscern

one another. Our men often advanced right up to the line of enemy machine guns, treacherously 
hidden in this brush and were shot there. Mech. Wahlstedt displayed extraordinary heroism in 
pushing forward into such a position and was killed while so doing.

Wangsness, Pvt. Perry (deceased), 2786697, Co. L, 305th Inf. — For extraordinary heroism in action in 
the Bois de la Naza, Argonne Forest, on or about Oct. 3, 1918. In the first days of the advance into 
this portion of the Forest, our progress was held up by a line of enemy machine guns so effectively 
concealed in the dense underbrush that our troops could advance right up to the enemy positions 
before either our troops or those of the enemy were aware of the other. A raking machine gun fire 
constantly swept our positions, though apparently not always aimed at definite targets. Knowing 
fully the danger of the undertaking, Pvt. Wangsness advanced in the face of continuous machine 
gun fire for the purpose of placing his automatic rifle in position to drive out a supposed enemy nest . 
While in the act of creeping forward, he was struck by no less than five machine gun bullets, and from 
these wounds, he died. 

Next of kin — Marcus Wangsness, father, Garretson, South Dakota. 

Welker, PFC. Everett J., 3130976, Co. L, 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism in action, in the Bois 
de la Naza, Argonne Forest, on Oct. 3, 1918. Advancing by infiltration, in order to dislodge a line 
of enemy machine gun nests treacherously concealed in the heavy undergrowth which, in some places, 
precluded observation at a distance of more than ten yards, Pvt. Welker and four comrades took 
temporary shelter from the searching machine gun fire in a shell hole. Suddenly, a German hand- 
grenade landed in the hole, at their feet. .-Mthough he might have jumped out of the hole and been 
comparatively safe from the effects of the grenade, he coolly seized it and hurled it forward, into the 
brush, where it exploded an instant later. 

Next of kin— Grant Welker, father, Woodlake, Neb. 

Werner, Cpl. George (deceased), 2444080, Co. H, 305th Inf.— Did, on or about Oct. 4, 1918, in the Bois 
de la Naza, Argonne Forest, immediately after an unsuccessful attack upon a line of enemy machine 
gun nests, volunteer to crawl forward with his platoon sergeant and one other man through the brush, 
under intermittent machine gun fire, to the point of farthest advance, in order to attempt the rescue 
of three men reported missing in the action. In the fast growing darkness, he found the body of one. 
Then, although in enemy territory, he and his comrades ventured to call aloud. Answer came from 
one of the missing, who was seriously wounded and helpless. Despite the renewed machine gun fire 
which greeted this hazardous effort, he and his associates succeeded quickly in moving to the wounded 
man and carried him back to the .\merican lines. In so doing, he displayed extraordinary heroism 
and exceptional concern for the safety of his men.

Werner, Cpl. Morris, 1697543, D Company, 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism near the \'esle River.

Wilkin, Stable Sgt. Rol)ert J., l(i!)6963, M. 0. Co., 305th Inf.—For extraordinary lieroism in action, on 
the night of Aug. 13, 1918, at Mt. St. Martin, near the Vesle. While the transport of the M. G. Co. 
was assisting in the completion of a relief of the front lines, the unit experienced its first shell fire, a 
heavy concentration of high explosive and gas upon an exposed road. Most of the twenty-four horses 
hitched to the gun carts became unmanageable and broke away. This soldier, in utter disregard 
of his own safety, proceeded out of the town on the open road under shell fire and machine gun fire 
and in a heavy concentration of gas collected without assistance six horses and carts, bringing them 
to a place of comparative safety. Returning, he found and brought in three more, still unassisted. 
Next of kin— John J. Wilkin, father, Brewster, X. V. 

Wilson, PFC. Charles C, 1699359, San. Det., 305th Inf.— On the Vesle River at Ville Savoye in August, 
191S, while under heavy machine gim fire, and gas shell fire, this soldier fearlessly and without a thought 
of his own personal danger, went far out from the Aid Post in the open fields to attend the many serious- 
ly wounded, and courageously directed their removal to places of safety.

Winans, Sgt. Charles D., 1696761, Sup. Co., 305th Inf.— For extraordinary heroism at Vauxcerc on Sept. 
7, 1918, during a bombardment of heavy artillery fire concentrated upon the main street in the village. 
During the shelling, the entire regimental ration train was loaded and ready to proceed. The fright- 
ened animals were in the wildest confusion, attempting to plunge into a deep ravine at the side of the 
road which would have meant their certain death. Sgt. Winans, with three other men, left the shelter 
of the caves where all men had been ordered for safety, and with utter disregard for his own personal 
safety, succeeded by his good judgment and daring in unhitching many of the animals and conducting 
them to a place of safety. Although four animals were killed in his presence by the concussion of 
one of the bursting high explosive shells, Sgt. Winans did, beyond the line of his duty, remain in the 
village streets for the full hour of the bombardment until the other twenty-eight animals were conducted 
to a point of safety either by him or under his direction. By so doing, he not only saved the lives of 
many animals, but preser\ed the daily issue of rations so that they were delivered to front line troops 
on schedule time. On other occasions throughout the regimental campaigns on the .\isnc and Argonne 
fronts, he accompanied the ration train as guide, to his respective battalion, in order to see that the 
food was properly delivered and assorted, and did at all times display a marked courage and devotion 
to duty in many trying situations.

which had caused casualties in his platoon. Knowing that he was subjected to fire from two direc- 
tions and that the enemy was cleverly hidden in buildings, Pvt. Zuckerman went out over an open 
field to draw fire so as to enable his platoon to locate accurately the enemy position. It was on the 
second effort of this kind that he was struck by a machine gun bullet and killed. This disregard of 
his own personal safety and continued demonstration of the offensive spirit was a great inspiration 
to the men of his company.
